MINUTES OF THE YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 
Morning Session, August 29th 

The 64th annual session of the Yancey Baptist Association was 
held with the Shoal Creek Baptist church on the 29th and 30th of 
August, 1941. The session was called to order by the moderator 
and the service opened by singing "Amazing Grace." The devotion 
was conducted by the Rev. E. J. Hall. 

Enrollment and organization with 10 pastors and representatives 
from 20 churches present. The moderator called the meeting to 
order for transaction of business. 

The program was adopted as set up and the following officers 
were elected: Moderator of association and Sunday School con- 
vention combined, Ben Lee Ray; Clerk, Mrs. Dawson Briggs; asso- 
ciate moderator, J. H. Black; Orphanage chairman, H. G. Bailey; 
Delegates to Southern Baptist Convention, Smoot Baker and Ben 
Lee Ray; Delegates to state convention, J. H. Black, Bascomb Pen- 
land and A. Z. Jamerson; Historian, Guss Peterson. 

REPORTS 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Orphanage Report by Dawson Briggs. (Read by clerk in 
absence of writer). The report was adopted and the discussion was 
lead by the Rev. A. J. McMillan. 

The children of the Baptist Orphanage of North Carolina may 
be classified in three groups, full orphans, half orphans, and victims 
of desertion and wrecked homes. 

These children are being cared for by three agencies: Mothers' 
Aid, Boarding Homes and the Orphanage. Our case workers are 
doing a great work by helping children and parents to make ad- 
justments with their neighbors and relatives. 

The demands upon the orphanage D^:thorities are great. They 
receive large numbers of applications each year but it is not the 
policy of the leaders to make special appeals. We make special 
appeals for other things and certainly this stream of hu nan want 
must be cared for year after year until the purpose of Christ through 
his church has been fulfilled. 

How best to meet these needs in the name of Christianity is 
the responsibility of the Christian church, and the extent to which 
the Christian responds to these things represents his faith in practical 
religion. 

We recommend as a goal for the association next year, a 
monthly contribution from each church or Sunday School, gifts of 
produce in season and a real Thanksgiving offering in November. 



ASSOCIATIONAL SERMON 



Rev. J. H. Black delivered the associational sermon at this 
time. Scripture, John 11:28. ''The Master is come and calleth for 
thee." 

The following visiting ministers were recognized: the Rev. 
Jesse Blalock, the Rev. J. A. McMillan and the Rev. Satterfield, 
representative of the Biblical Recorder. 

The appointment of various committees was made at this 
time as follows: 

1. Resolutions of Appreciation: J. H. Black, Ade Buchanan 
and Arthur Boone. 

2. Time, place and preacher: H. G. Bailey, A. P. Honeycutt, 
Mrs. Dewey Jamerson, E. D. Riddle, J. R. Edwards. 

3. Reports for the year 1942: Smoot Baker, Chairman, E. 
J. Hall, Ben Lee Ray, J. E. Hensley. 

Session adjourned for lunch. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

The Devotion was given by Rev. Parker. Bible schools report 
by Miss Hilliard and this was discussed by A. Z. Jamerson. Pledges 
were given to supplement the minute fund. A rising vote of thanks 
was given for Bible school workers. A special appeal was made 
for subscriptions for the Biblical Recorder by Rev. Satterfield. 

REPORT ON HOSPITALS 

Baptist Hospitals report was given by Jeter Hensley and dis- 
cussed by Rev. Parker. The Report was adopted. 

The thing that stood paramount in the life of Jesus was his 
love and compassion for the sick. Even down to His visible parting 
from His disciples he administered to their needs, and in His great 
compassion charged His disciples to heal them. 

Baptists, after a long lapse of time, again heard His challenge 
and decided to do something about it. Its beginning in North 
Carolina was about 1922 when a place to house and to administer 
to them was built. The first patient was received in 1928. 

The p'urpose of this hospital is to administer to all of our stato, 
regardless of creed or color. There has been a great extension 
to our hospital, which when complete will bed 150. Also to this 
has been added the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake 
Forest College. Up to date we have administered to 51,000 patients 
or more. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

State Missions, by Ade Buchanan. Report adopted. 

The purpose of State Missions is to assist the churches in 
establishing the Church of Christ in the hearts of the people of 
North Carolina. In an effort to do this, many agencies and means 
are used. Dr. Livingston Johnson aptly referred to State Missions 
as "seed corn." By that he meant, of course, that every agency 
and institution we have is dependent upon an adequate and aggres- 
sive State Mission Program. The seeds of State Missions are 
planted and as they spring up they multiply many times. State 
Missions has done much in the way of evangelism in North Caro- 
lina. The membership of Baptist churches in North Carolina has 
grown from ten to twenty thousand, one hundred years ago to about

a half million today. 

However, the task is far from complete. There are perhaps 
a million here in North Carolina who do not recog^iize God and 
Christ at all. State Missions have aided in establishing, and sup- 
porting churches and from time to time the State Missions have 
given small amounts for many churches enabling them to build, 
or make repairs. In many places they have helped purchase lots 
and build. At present, the salaries of about one hundred sixty 
pastors of this state are paid in part from our State Mission fund. 

State Missions also aided in the ministry of the church develop- 
ment and in teaching and training in this state. They have done 
this by sending out general missionaries to teach stewardship and 
teachers working through the Sunday schools of the state, thereby 
increasing attendance in Sunday school and by Baptist training 
unions and student workers in our higher institutions of learning 
in the state and by establishing schools for pastors. In addition 
to all of these. State Missions has helped to minister to other races. 
There are in our midst about a half million negroes and a few 
thousand Indians whom State Missions have aided in many ways. 
State Missions has provided chaplains at such hospitals as the Vet- 
erans' Hospital at Oteen and the Sanitorium at Black Mountain, 
and our State Board is mindful of the wayward. Our bnard is not 
spending any money directly in providing ministry to those con - 
fined in penal institutions which are called prisons, but they hope 
in the future to provide such a ministry. However, the State 
Mission Board is providing a ministry to the wayward girls now 
imprisoned at Samarcand. 

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

Home Missions, by Ben Lee Ray. Report adopted. 

Our Home Mission headquarters is in Atlanta, Georgia, led by 
J. B. Lawrence. Its ministry covers the eighteen southern states 
and the District of Columbia, also Cuba and other neighboring 
islands. We believe if this phase of our work was cut off from 
the cooperative program that our program would gradually bleed 
to death. This branch of our program is our main effort to reach 
the foreigners in our midst; to preach the gospel to the Indians, 
Negroes, Jews, prisoners and the deaf, mainly carrying the .gospel 
of Christ to all the underprivileged of our nation. F lease, let us 
remember that Christ in his commission to the church said, "Begin 
at Jerusalem and go to Judea and to Samaria, then unto the utter- 
most parts of the earth." We do not believe that our power can 
be great around the world unless we first win our lost at home: 
let us as a body who believe in Christ prove our belief in Christ by 
doing our best this year for Him; let each individual arise and sac- 
rificially support this great Christ commissioned Kingdom building: 
enterprise. 

These mission reports were discussed by Secretary M. A. Hug- 
gins. Christian Education was discussed by Rev. W. G. Baucom. 

SATURDAY MORNING SESSION 

The meeting opened by the singing of ''Gethsemane." 
The devotion was conducted by Rev. Barnet Ray. 
The following visitors were recognized: Rev. W. G. Baucom 
and R. C. Arrowood. 



REPORT ON WOMAN'S WORK 



Woman's Work by Mrs. A. Z. Jamerson. Report adopted. 

Read by Rev. A. Z. Jamerson in the absence of writer. He 
also discussed the report. 

The Woman's Work of Yancey Association consists of five 
Missionary Societies, tw^o Girl's Auxiliaries, three Royal Ambassa- 
dor Chapters and three Sunbeam bands. They have a total mem- 
bership of 178, with 34 tithers. 

We gave to Missions last year, $248.16. Through the personal 
service work many gifts were given, and food and clothing was 
carried to the needy. We believe the workers are doing a great 
work in Yancey and we are pleading to the churches that do not 
have these organizations to join us that we might have others 
working in a more definite way for the Master. 

TEMPERANCE AND PUBLIC MORALS 

Temperance and Public Morals — by D. R. Fouts. Report ad- 
opted. Read by the Clerk in the absence of the writer. Ben Lee 
Ray discussed this report later on the program. 

The cause of temperance is one that must be furthered by 
increasing the interest of our people in it. In order to have a suc- 
cessful program of any kind, it is necessary to create a sentiment 
for that cause. It would seem that within the last few months the 
subject of temperance has not been widely discussed and whether 
that be on account of a lack of interest or a spiritual weakness, I 
do not know. It is certain that the sentiment of a majority of the 
people for a proposition must be obtained in order to put up a suc- 
cessful fight. 

Those who believe in temperance should not be discouraged by 
any reverses. We know that the gain that has been made in behalf 
of temperance has not been accomplished without having had many 
discouragements. Many will probably differ with me when I say 
that in my opinion public morals are at a lower ebb than in many 

While there may be an increase in the number of Christians 
each successive year, yet there surely must be a decrease in spiritual 
fervor and, as a result, there is a let down in the morals. Even 
though there may be a difference of opinion as to the conditions 
which exist now, we can do no less than to remain steadfast in the 
faith and strive to improve those conditions, ever keeping in mind 
that this is the only course open to Christians and by means of 
which theie can be hope of reward. 

MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

Ministerial Relief by S. E. Tilson. Report adopted. He also 
discussed the report. 

The ministers' and church employees* Retirement plan for 
pastors and full time church employees is now in its second year 
ot oi>eration in North Carolina. 

At this date, July 1, 1941, about 325 pastors and employees 
have become members, with around 300 of these with all payments 
paid up to date. As of January, 1941, a few pastors of sixty-five 
and beyond retired and are now receiving monthly age annuities. 
One is receiving around thirty five dollars a month as a disability 
benefit and another is in the process of being approved for such 
disability. 

This whole plan is merely a common sense way of creating a 
fund in advance so that when a pastor becomes disabled or reaches 



the retirement age, which is sixty five, he may retire knowing that 
an annuity has been built up for him. The plan is not so much 
designed to lay up money against a rainy day as it is to lay up 
something against that certain day that every man and woman 
must come to, the age of sixty five. 

To be sure it costs something to build up- such a fund. We 
cannot take out something we do not put in. The plan is very 
simple. A pastor or church employee pays into the fund four per- 
cent of the salary received from church or churches; or he may 
enter the plan and p-ay three percent or two percent, receiving, of 
course, a reduced benefit. Then the church, or churches, served 
pays into the fund an amount equivalent to the amount paid by 
the pastors. This money invested begins to draw interest, and 
thus the fund is increased. 

The Baptist State Convention, through agencies, spent much 
time in trying to work out the plan which in all respects is safe 
and sound. It remains only for pastors and churches to take ad- 
vantage of this remarkable opportunity now offered. It is really 
the first time Baptists have undertaken to meet in an adequate 
way the situation of caring for our aged ministers. We, therefore, 
recommend to all pastors and all churches that they enter the plan 
at an early date. 

For churches that have budgets, we recommend that the amount 
needed for the retirement plan be placed in the budget; for those 
churches not having budgets we recommend that some time during 
the year a time be set when the peop-le will be asked to bring 
gifts for this purpose. 

"A Vital Message For The Church Today" was brought by 
Rev. Smoot Baker. 

SATURDAY AFTERNOON SESSION 

The devotion was given by Rev. Boone. 

REPORT ON TRAINING UNION 

Training Union Report was made by Delma Hensley. 

"To everyone there openth a high road and a low, 
And every man decideth which way his soul should go.'' 
What a road is open to us as Baptists of Yancey County, and 
what a few of us take advantage cf our golden opportunity of 
learning more of our Master through the B.T.U. work! 

There is usually a fair enrollment in our Junior and Inter- 
mediate B.T.U's. but what is wrong with our young people? Why 
do we become uninterested when we join Young People's B.T.U ? 

Our convention, which was held with Riverside Baptist church, 
was on of the most enjoyable and most inspiring conventions w^e 
have had. Despite the fact that some of us are falling down on 
the job, there was some improvement over last year. A few new 
B.T.U's. have been organized and are doing good work. At the 
convention it was decided upon to meet quarterly during the year; 
thereby, hoping to stimulate more interest and carry our inspiration 
into our work. 

Young Baptist of Yancey County, the challenge is ours! There 
is work to be done. Shall we follow the straight and narrow way 
and choose the "high road?" 

Respectfully submitted, 

Dellma Hensley, Associational Director 



SUNDAY SCHOOLS 



Sunday Schools report was made by H. G. Bailey. 

The Annual Associational Sunday School Convention was held 
July 19th with the Crabtree Baptist Church with a record atten- 
dance. 

The following officers were elected, subject to the approval 
of the Association. 

H. G. Bailey, Moderator. 

B. M. Tomberlin, Superintendent. 

Ollie Styles, Secretary. 

Some progress was made during the past year and the out- 
look is more favorable because of more interest on the part of 
the workers, but we yet have a long way to go before we are doing 
our full duty of reaching, teaching, and enlisting the people. 

It was decided to hold four quarterly meetings in the Associa- 
tion, the first one to be held with the Bolens Creek Baptist church 
on the Fifth Sunday in August, and the other meetings except the 
annual meeting to be on the Fifth Sundays with churches for the 
next meetings decided upon at each of these meetings. 

It is generally thought that this will help a lot toward reach- 
ing our objectives in our teaching program. 

We are beginning our new associational year by looking out 
upon the field that is already white unto harvest with a prayer on 
our hearts that workers may be enlisted sufficient to do the work 
in our Sabbath School in a way that will be pleasing to the great 
teacher— ^'Our Christ."

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

When we think of our Foreign Mission Fields we exclaim, 
"Who is sufficient for all these things?" In our fear and distre s 
we turn to the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. It is He who 
rules the affairs of men and nations. 

Our Foreign Mission work is being greatly handicapped be- 
cause of the war that is being waged on our mission fields. Many 
of our missionaries are being called home because of the war. 

The Lottie Moon offering, which is made each Christmas, 
serves as a balance force to our Board. This offering is put in 
the bank to be drawn on in the lean months of summer for sala • - 
ies, homes, school buildings, colleges, training schools and churches 

Some members from each church should attend the Foreign 
Mission Conference at Ridgecrest, which is held in August.

TEMPERANCE AND PUBLIC MORALS 

This subject is one that has been discussed through the cen- 
turies and is no less important today than in its beginning. 

When we begin to compare its evils with those of former 
years, we can readily see, from the havoc it is playing now, that 
it is now more destructive than in many periods of former years 

Here are some facts relative to the Liquor Traffic: In North 
Carolina alone, in Cumb-erland County, for the fast twelve months, 
ending June 30, 1941. $960,509.90 spent for Liquor. Doubtles.s 
these statistics have been more than doubled in 1942. 

These facts are alarming— what shall we as a people do 
about it? 

May we arise with courage sufficient to grapple with this 
force until it shall have become abolished from our land. 

Respectfully submitted, 
E. J. HALL 

HOME MISSIONS 

Jesus in his commission to his first followers, or more to say, 
followers with him, challenged them first with the home base. 
He knew quite well if this was adequately strong the whole team 
would succeed with his program. 

What is the Home Board? It is that part of the Southern 
Baptist Convention which functions within its bounds in Evange- 
lism Education, and sometimes in building and loans. That is, 
loans for building Church and Education departments to churches. 

Much stress is laid on the work. It is endeavoring to do 
among the Indian, Jew and Foreigners who are among us and too 
we have to work in Cuba. 

To strengthen home means only to increase our union of all 
the world. As we realize our home need, we have a deep desire 
for the world, the same we desire for our home. 

J. E. HENSLEY 

REPORT ON V. B. S. 

In the commission of our Lord in Matt. 28: 19, 20, we are 
com^manded to teach all nations then baiptize them, then told what 
to teach them; all things whatsoever He has commanded us are 
not the things he commanded us to do are to be found in the 
Bible. Who then could object to the V. B. S. where our children 
are taught the things he commanded ? 

Out of 32 churches we had only 18 that bfelieved this. This 
summer in these 18 churches between 600 and 700 children were 
reached with the teachings of Jesus. Was your child in this 
group? If not, you are responsible. I think, too, that if mv 
children fail to be tau^^ht what He has commanded, and die and 
go to Hell, their mother and myself are responsible, and we shall 
go deeper into Hell than they. 

Let us awake in Yancey to do His biddings, lest we fall short 
of his promises. It is, therefore, earnestly urged that every 
church in our Association put on a greater teaching program than 
ever before.

People do not because they know not. How can they know 
without someone to teach them ? If you want a scnool in your 
church next summer, contact ycur V. B. S. Leader and plans shall 
be worked out for your school. Let's let this be our big^-est year 
because we endeavor to carry out the commission of our Lord.

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

Our State Mission work in many respects is very important. 
We do not undervalue the great woik of missions in general when 
we lay stress on this phase of our work. We must have a strong 
base from which to draw as we go to the work of evangelizing 
the world. Our State work is carried on by our geneial Secretary 
M. A. Huggins and through his efforts, North Carolina Baptists 
are doing a great work. 

This effort is carried on by 86 State missionaries who receive 
part or all support from the general Board. 

We have a well organized W. M U. department with a Sun- 
day School department and a B. T. U. depaitment all complete 
and doing great work in their general fields. 

Our students department is helping worthy boys and gi:ls 
in their education and Christian duty at our various schools. 

We are fostering mission work among our Indian^ in Swain 
and Roberson counties which is promising and worth while. 

Out of every dollar given thru the co operative piogram 20 
cents goes into the work, besides all designated funds for same. 

Let us not forget to work the work for us to do at this time 
around our camps. Mr. Huggins thinks we have there the great- 
est State Mission opportunity that we have had in North Caro- 
lina in years. 

May we pray and give more to the great work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. M. TURBYFILL 

W. M. U. REPORT 

We are happy to give a few evidences of growth of the 
Womans' work in the coimty. Each society has been doing a 
greater work, and has been reaching out to a larger field. 

The work in the county consists of seven W. M. U. Societies, 
one Y. W. A., one Royal Ambassador Chapter, four G. A's and 
two Sunbeam bands with a total membersnip of around 150. 

We have 40 tithers and had eight Mission Study Classes last 
year. 

The total gifts last year were $272.90, or 20 per cent increase 
over the year before. 

There is one new Society at Brown's Creek. 

We need more women and we hope that in the near futuie, 
more pastors, and women will see the need of the work and that 
more churches will have some or all of the Societies. 

This year we shall face a challenge to carry on our program 
of Missions, and each one in our county will help to meet that 
challenge with faith and our spirit of sacrifice.

We do not know what the future holds for us. Many changes 
have come and more will come but we do know that God's love 
and care will not change. His promises and his plan of the ages 
to save a lost world will not change. He is saying to us: "Ye 
shall b'e my witness," we must go into all the world with his 
message. Now is the time to arise and shine.

THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The last three years have been eventful in the expansion of 
the hospital. Three years ago the hospital had a bed capacity of 
100 and by overcrowding, we were caring for about 4,000 patients 
per year. 

Today, we have a modernly constructed and equipped hospi- 
tal with a bed capacity of almost 10,000 patients annually, and 
are caring for about 650 patients per month. Owing to a short- 
age of nurses caused by war conditions, the hospital has been 
unable to op-en a few rooms. 

We shall have this year not less than 2,500 service or free 
patients. This will represent, including hospital and medical 
service, about $250,000 in free service for this year. 

The hospital has a staff of 26 internes and about 100 doctors 
practicing in the hospital. In addition, it has the free service of 
the entire staff of the Medical School whenever desired for con- 
sultation and diagnosis. Every department is thoroughly organ- 
ized to give the most efficient service possible. 

The equipment, as well as the building, is entirely modern. The 
hospital recently added $20,000 worth of new instruments to the 
operating rooms and $44,000 worth of new X-Ray equipment, 
making an X-Ray department "None better in the South". 

The hospital, in conjunction with the Medical School, has a 
floor-space of four acres and represents a value to the denomi- 
nation of $2,000,000 with only a very small amount of indebted- 
ness. 

The purpose of the hospital shall remain as ever — to give 
hospital treatment to those who are unable to pay for same, edu- 
cate nurses with Christian ideals, and at the same time maintain 
a standard of scientific efficiency "second to none in the country". 
It is the abiding purpose of the management that it shall be de- 
finitely a Christian Institution with all that it implies. 

This greatly expanded service which is growing more and 
more into every section of the state, of course, requires an in- 
creased support. This, we are glad to report, is growing year 
by year. In addition to the Mother's Day offering by the church- 
es and Sunday Schools, which has increased in the last few years 
from $11,500 to about $38,000 this year, the hospital linens con- 
tributed by the W. M. U's and other agencies has increased year 
by year.

REPORT ON PERIODICALS 

Solomon once said, "Of making many books there is no end" 
(Eccl. 12:12). This was never more true than it is today when 
scores of books come from the presses almost daily and the whole 
world reads. 

The power ol the printed page is generally recognized, but 
little atttention is given to seeing that the right printed pages are 
found in our homes and read by our people. 

Surely the Bible should have first place in all our reading, 
that we might learn of God, of his plan for our lives and for the 
world, and that we might have strength for our tasks and tem- 
ptations. 

The Sunday S<^hool Board is contributing by providing scores 
of periodicals at a nominal cost. These periodicals may be group- 
ed as follows: Sunday School, Training Union, Woman's Miss 
ionary Union, Brotherhood and religious magazines of a general 
nature. Too much cannot be said in emphasizing their being read 
and studied diligently. 

Our Baptist Book Store offers a wide selection of the highest 
type books and reading matter. Our people would profit gien 
by securing good books for their personal use and parents would 
be wise to make available for their children reading material of 
the right sort. The decline in spiritual life today may be attrib-- 
uted to a large extent to the fact that the home of today does 
not stress spiritual food from the printed page. 

"Out of the heart are the issues of life.'' And into one's heavt 
goes what he sees and reads in books, magazines, leaflets and 
other printed matter. 

Respectfully submitted, 
ADE BUCHANAN 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

Christian Education is essential to a Christian community, 
state, or nation. This education begins in the home. This is the 
fountain head of all education. Parents have the greatest duty 
and highest privileges in the home for Christian teachino;. 

Next, our churches, are important. If the home fails, the 
church is our hope. Put proper emphasis on teaching and train- 
ing of all our people — young and old alike-in our churches 

Colleges and schools are our big agencies also. Education 
without religion is dangerous. So we attempt to maintain and 
foster Christian schools. 

There are two great ways we may support mr denomina- 
tional schools — send them our boys and girls and sup-port the n 
financially and prayerfully. If our Baptist schools are worth 
having, they deserve our best support. Mars Hill, Boilino: 
Springs, Wingate, Campbell, Chowan, Meredith and Wake Forest 
are our Baptist State Institutions. 

This is a great day for Christian schools. Christianity would 
die without them. Visit them; pray for them; finance them; 
and send your youth to them.

SMOOT BAKER

OLD MINISTERS RELIEF 

This suggestion should not require lengthy discussion in view 
of the fact that every interested person ought to be in favor of 
Old Ministers. A splendid plan has now been developed whereby 
the Minister, the Church and the State Convention can insure the 
protection of our Ministers when they become disabled or reach 
that point by reason of age where they can no longer work. 

It is to be hoped that we are getting away from the indiffer- 
ent attitude which Baptist Churches have had toward the welfare 
and security of our Ministers. Every Baptist Church should now 
avail itself of the opportunity to assist our Ministers. The cost 
is so small and the plan is safe. Let us remember that we do 
not pay our Ministers enough to enable them to establish them- 
selves securely for later life and it is our duty in carrying on 
the work of the Kingdom to look after those who so faithfully 
serve us.

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

The children of the Baptist Orphanage of North Carolina may 
be classified in thiee groups, full orphans, half orphans, and vic- 
tims of desertion and wrecked homes. 

These children are being cared for by three agencies: Moth- 
er's Aid, Boarding Homes and the Orphanage. Our case workers 
are doing a great work by helping children and parents to make 
adjustments with their neighbors and relatives. 

The demands upon the orphanage authorities are great. They 
receive large numbers of applications each year but it is not the 
policy of the leaders to make special appeals. We make special 
appeals for other things and certainly this stream of human want 
must be cared for year after year until the purpose of Christ 
through his church has been fulfilled. 

How best to meet these needs in the name of Christianity is 
the responsibility of the Christian church, and the extent to which 
the Christian responds to these things represents his faith i n 
piactical religion. 

We recommend as a goal for the association next year, a 
monthly contribution from each church or Sunday School, gifts of 
produce in season and a real Thanksgiving offering in November. 
All churches are urged to respond more liberally to this cause.

PROCEEDINGS 
First Day, Morning Session 

The Yancey Baptist Association meeting with Jacks Creek 
church in its sixty-sixth annual session was called to order by 
the Moderator, Rev. Ben Lee Ray. 

"Majestic Sweetness" and "Have Thine Own Way" were 
sung by the congregation. Rev. J. A. McMillan offered the 
opening prayer. 

Program was adopted as outlined. Eight pastors were pre- 
sent and twenty churches were represented. 

Rev. A. Z. Jamerson presented the Orphanage Report. The 
report was adopted and is; as follows: 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Article 1 of our constitution says: "This institution shall be 
known as the Baptist Orphanage of North Carolina, Incorporated, 
formerly known as Thomasville Baptist Orphanage and later 
known as the Mills Home, according to its amended charter, and 
shall have for its object the support and caring for and training 
of dependent children of the white race." 

The Orphanage maintains two homes, the Mills Home in 
Thomasville and the Kennedj^ Home near Kinston. These are not 
two orphanages but are the two homes of the Baptist Orphan- 
age. Each of these homes has a Superintendent but neither has 
a separate treasurer, for the Orphanage treasurer handles all of 
the finances of both homes. 

We have cared for during 1942, 687 in the two homes, 35 in 
boarding homes, and 74 in their own homes. We have been able 
to place a larger number than ever before, thus enabling us to 
be of service to more children. 

Attendance in school reached almost 99 per cent, due to the 
general good health of the children and the almost total absence 
of any contagious diseases. 

As a result of good food, regular hours and the cooperation 
of all workers, the health of our children is far above that of 
the outside population. 

Clothing to a great extent is made by the children, with the 
aid of competent supervisors. 

The physical education program goes on the year round with 
trained directors in charg^e. 

A graded Sunday school. Training Union and Woman's Miss- 
ionary Union both at Kennedy Home and Mills Home helps in 
rounding out the lives of our boys and girls. 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



5 



A profitable commercial printing shop is maintained and 
large numbers of our boys are trained. 

The greatest assets of this Orphanage are the many friends 
who love it. That mighty Thanksgiving offering whose echoes 
are still sweetly ringing in our hearts was the most heartening 
and uplifting thing in a financial way that ever came to our 
Orphanage life. The continuation of the monthly offerings from 
the Sunday school climaxed by another Thanksgiving offering as 
good or better than the one of last year will make it possible 
for us to meet the demands being placed upon us in these 
strenuous times. 

We must never lose sight of the one chief purpose of the 
Orphanage, and that is making worth while men and women out 
of dependent boys and girls. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. Z. JAMERSON 

Rev. J. A. McMillan, Orphanage Representative, spoke on 
"Real Religion." 

Rev. E. J. Hall presented the report on Temperance and 
Public Morals. Rev. E. J. Hall and Rev. S. W. Shuford discuss- 
ed the report. Report adopted and is as follows: 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE AND PUBLIC MORALS 

This subject has been discussed year after year, and I can- 
not see as discussing the subject, and not trying to do something 
about the evils involved will bring us very much success. 

Before the repeal of the prohibition laws there were 177,000 
outlets for the sale of legalized liquors in the United States. 
Recent reports indicate ttiat there are no less than 435,000 places 
where alcholic beverages are sold today. 

The state of North Carolina alone is spending one hundred 
million dollars per year for this poison, an average of one mill- 
ion dollars per county. 

This is a challenge to us. Let's put on the whole armor of 
God and fight. 

Respectfully submitted, 
E. J. HALL 

The following committees were appointed: 

1. Nominations: E J. Hall, B. B Penland, Mrs. J. D 
Turbyfill. 

2. Resolutions: J. H. Black, Mrs. B. B. Penland, Welzie Ray. 

3. Time, Place and Preacher: W M. Gardner, E. G. Adkins,

4. Ordination of ministers: A. Z. Jamerson, J. H. Black, 
Ade Buchanan. 

5. Reception of new Churches: Arthur Thomas, S. W. Shu- 
ford, Lonzie Silvers. 

Hymn: ''Break Thou the Bread of Life." 

The intioduc'cory sermon was preached by Rev. Ade Buch- 
anan, from Matthew 3:2. His subject was "The Kingdom of 
Heaven on Earth." 

Hymn: "The Kingdom is Coming." Benediction by Rev. 
Smoot Baker.

First Day Evening Session 

Hymn: "Come Thou Fcunt." Rev. Pyler McMahan led a de- 
votional period. 

Training Union report presented by Mrs. Smoot Baker who 
also discussed the same. Report adopted and is as follows: 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

The great commission of our Lord instructs us as followers 
of His to make disciples of all nations — teaching them to observe 
the things He did and taught and « commanded. We, of today, 
must realize that we really do "learn to do by doing." The best 
way to teach the disciples of Christ to carry out His practice is 
through the Training Union. This medium, because of its mem- 
bership, plan of organization, and lesson materials, provides the 
solution to our need fo>' efficient well-trained Sunday school 
teachers and officers, church officers, W. M. U. leaders and 
workers, and church and denominational leaders of every kind. 

This is an age of severe training and efficient workmen in 
every avenue of our mechanized life. We see the wisdom of 
Uncle Sam's training every one of his service men and women. 
Yet we presume to be so blind as to believe that the greatest 
army, the most important businss, the only lasting enterprise in 
the world — the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ — may progress 
satisfactorily without giving thought to the training of soldiers 
of Christ. 

For the ensuin.g year, let me suggest: 

(1) That as individuals we avail ourselves of the present 
training opportunities m cur churches. 

(2) That in chare}- es where no training is available because 
of no unions we seek to establish and maintain unions for every 
age group. 

(3) That as churches we support the unions now organized 
and establish other needed ones. 

(4) That as pastors we cooperate with, encourage and sup- 
port any organizations now existing in the various churches and 
lend assistance in the beginning of new organizations and the 
carrying out of the Associational work. 

(5) That the Associational Tl-aining Union continue its quar- 
terly meetings — such meetings being supported by all our people. 

(6) And that each person, beginning with the least and 
going to the greatest, lecognize fully his opportunity and obliga- 
tion in developing himsf^lf to his fullest capacity, realizing that 
our Lord is satisfied with nothing less than the best the best 
we have, the best we are, and the best we ever may be- 
come through training and developing in this organization. 

Respectfullv submitted, 

MRS. SMOOT BAKER. 

Special Music — Quartet- "Face to Face." 

Rev Smoot Baker read and discussed the report on Periodi- 
cals. Report was adopted and is as follows: 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 7 



REPORT ON PERIODICALS 

A Baptist need not go on uninformed. Our Sunday School 
Board contributes and provides a wide selection of periodicals 
each month, and at a nominal cost. 

Then our State has its ''Charity and Children" to inform as 
of our orphans, and ''The Biblical Recorder" to instruct, inform 
and inspire us in all of our cooperative work. 

A Reading- Baptist is a better Baptist! No Baptist can af- 
ford to neglect these two great weekly periodicals. Every church 
should see to it that these two organs are distributed wisely and 
well in its membership.

The report on Woman's Missionary Union was read and 
discussed by Miss Laura Mae Hilliard. The report was adopted 
and is as follows: 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 
The purpose of Woman's Missionary Union has never chang- 
ed since planted in the hearts of earnest women in 1888: "de- 
sirous of stimulating a missionary spirit and the grace of giv- 
ing among the women and young people of the churches." This 
is definitely in keeping with the marching orders given to us by 
Christ, "Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, 
baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and 
of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things whatso- 
ever I commanded you, and lo, I am v/itli you always, even unto 
the end of the world," 

Through its program the Woman's Missionary Union seeks 
to mobilize, organize, vitalize and utilize the women and young 
people in this great God-given Missionary task. In the weekly 
meetings of the Sunbeam Bands children become missionary 
hearted, by following 1he Star Ideals of Girl's Auxiliaries the 
girls grow in the Chijstian graces, through the purposeful fel- 
lowship shared by the mem.b'ers of Young Woman's Auxiliary 
principles of Christian living are deeply impressed, in the Royal 
Ambassador Chapters boys feel the enthusiasm of a real boy's 
organization motivated by missions as a part of their church 
life and the women find in their Society an opportunity to serve 
Christ conserving their talents for the Church and the Kingdom. 

Jesus oaid, "I am the Light of the world" but He also said, 
"Ye are the Light of the world." Are the women and young peo- 
ple of the Baptist churches of Yancey County doing what they 
can to let the true Light, Jesus Christ, shine through them to 
bri.ghten this County, thip State, this Nation and the Nations of 
the world? We bow our heads in humility and shame when the 
facts are revealed for there are only:

May we begin now with the Lord's help to plan for a fully 
graded Woman's Missionary Union in every church in this asso- 
ciation, and at the close of next year be able to say we have at- 
tempted to march forward with Christ as we have studied, pray- 
ed, worked and given in and through a Missionary Agency of the

The work of Vacation Bible S-chools, including a report for 
1943, was discussed by Miss Laura Mae Hilliard. 

The report on the Hospital was read and adopted. The re- 
port is as follows: 

THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Baptist Hospital has completed a full year with its en- 
larged facilities. Instead of caring for 4,000 patients as former- 
ly, we have had 12,000 the past year, 1942. It is again becoming 
increasingly difficult to provide for the growing numbers of 
sick who come for treatment — an average of 33 each day. 

Of these 12,000 patients who were treated last year, 4,000 
were service patients: that is, were unable to pay a hospital bill. 
These are the sick for whom our Mother's Day offering is made. 
It is also interesting to note that 4,000 of this 12,000 patients 
were mothers who had, here and there in our state, 12,000 dhild- 
ren waiting anxiously for her return. We had also about 175 
ministers, returned missionaries, ministerial students and children 
from our orphanage for whom no lharge was made. 

The Hospital Training School for Nurses has 116 students in 
training, 51 staff and graduate nurses, with an addition of 22 
nurses and Red Cross Aids, making a nursing staff of 189. 

It is one of the functions of the Baptist hospital to educate 
as many nurses as possible with the Christian ideal of service. 
These are always selected so as to represent as nearly as pos- 
sible every section of our state. 

Although quite a number of our medical staff are constant- 
ly going into the service of our country, we still have a staff of 
about 75 doctors, almost all of whom are specialists in the sev- 
eral fields of medicine and surgery. 

These two institutions — Hospital and Medical School — repre- 
sent a money value to the denomination of $2,000,000. 

It is with a just pride, we trust, that the American Medical 
Association has given the Baptist Hospital the highest rating of 
any hospital in the entire south, save one. 

The hospital desire^ to express to the members of this as- 
sociation their appreciation for the best Mother's Day Offering 
ever, and also to the W. M. U.'s and other church agencies this 
same appreciation for their generous contributions of hospital 
linen.

The hospital was built and has operated for these 20 years 
with one great fundaniental purpose: that it shall be an institu- 
tion through which the hr.lf million Baptist of our state may ren- 
der a definite Christian Service to sick and suffering humanity 
who could not, in most instances, have hospital treatment other- 
wise. It is the purpose of the denomination and the manage- 
ment that it shall forever remain true to this one purpose in ad- 
dition to its wider service. 

Respectfully submitted,

Dr. L. L. Carpenter presented the "Biblical Recorder." 

Rev. J. E. Hensley read and discussed the Home Mission 
report. The same was adopted and is as follows: 
HOME MISSION REPORT 

Home Missions is the efforts of all the churches combined 
into one great effort to do missionary work that cannot be done 
Yyy any one congregation or local church alone, or either our 
state agencies. It is that evangelistic-missionary undertaking, 
here in the South. 

It is a leverage for the World's uplift offered in the evan- 
gelization and christianization of the homeland — the Kingdom of 
Christ on Earth. This Kingdom which is our Lord's can never 
come until we enthrone this Lord of the Kingdom in our ovm 
hearts and lives.

ASSOCIATION 

IN ITS SIXTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL .SESSION 

— Held With — 
PLEASANT GAP BAPTIST CHURCH 

September 1 and 2, 1944 

THE FIELDS ARE ALL WHITE 



The fields are ali white, and the reapers are few, 
Bnt little we know, and what can we do 
To work for our Lord in His Harvest? 

We'll work by our prayers, by the money we bring, 
And the small self-denials; the least little thing 
May work for our Lord in His Harvest, 

Until by and by as the years pass at length, 
We, too, may be reapers, and go forth in strength 
To work for our Lord in His harvest. 

Author Unknown 



NEXT SESSION will be held with the Mount Mitchell

Superintendent I. G. Greer brought greetings from the Or- 
phanage. 

"Developing Conviction.- About Ourselves" was discussed un- 
der two topics: E. J. Hall spoke about '^Who Is a Good Stew- 
ard" and included the foiiOvving scatements: 

"Most of the time whtn we mention Stewardship we think of 
money. That was not all Jesus meant when He taught the many- 
parables about Stewardship. There are five outstanding things 
which jesus taught us about Stewardship — 1. We must use 
our time,, 2. We must use our talent, 3. We must use our 
friendship, 4. We must use our money, 5. We must use all in our 
possessions. Ihi? is my definition of a Good Steward. Any one 
who will recognize God s ownership in all things is a good 
steward. 

J. H. Black called for a personal inventory as he called to 
our attention this question, "Are Yancey County Baptists Good 
Stewards?" These thoughts were included: 

"A steward is one who handles anothers goods or property, 
and is responsible to the rightful owner for the way in which he 
hardies the goods or propeity. It is written, "Let a man so ac- 
count of us as the ministers of Christ and stewards of the 
mystery of God. Moreover it is required of Stewards that a man 
b-e found faithful." I Cor. *4:l-2. 

It will be of interest to note that the gift to all causes over 
that of last year is $4200.73. For this we should be grateful, to 
Him who has so richly blessed us in making this possible. 

Total gifts for ail causes amounted to $22,15_.84. This means 
that the 4697 church members gave on an average $4.72 per per- 
son which in all seriousness makes the situation appaling in the 
light of being a good steward. If the earnings of 4697 church 
nembers had been only $0 a week on an average, and only a 
^ t .nth of such amount given, this would have amounted to 
$122,122.00 Which leavco around $100,000.00 for which Yancey 
County Baptists will have to give an account for. May each oi 
us taKe it lo heart and see to it. that if God gives the opportun- 
ity, next year will not find us this far behind." 

After singing, "O Zion Haste," Dr. W. H. Fitzgerald, Miss- 
ionary to the Indians, challenged the group as he spoke concern- 
ing "Developing Convictions about Kingdom Building in the 
Homeland." 

General Missionary, J C. Pipes came at this time to discuss^ 
> "Developing Convictions about Kingdom Building in North Caro- 

lina." 

Following the singing of the Hymn, "Lead On O King Eter- 
nal" the Chair asked for a report from the committees:

Association." 

The Congregation stood in quietness as the Pianist played 
"My Faith Looks' Up To Thee." Benediction was pronounced by 
E. J. Hall. 

First Day, Evening Session 

Preceding the Evening session there was a conference for 
Deacons, Pastors and Church Officers. This was directed by J. 
C. Pi-nes 

The messengers re-assembled at 8 P. M. There were mom- 
ents of meditation Including the singing of the Hymn, "Loyalty 
to Christ", and the Devotional, "Developing Convictions about 
Prayer", led by Laura Mae Hilliard. 

Mrs Andrew Johnson gave the Training Union Report. It 
was adopted and is as folloms: 

The following figures need to come before us: 

7 Churches have one or more Unions 

4 Adult Unions 



10 MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



3 Young: People's Unicns 
6 Intermediate Unions 
6 Junior Unions 
3 Story Hours 

There are twenty-two unions with 302 enrolled, 21 Bible 
readers, 170 taking a Study Course and 243 Systematic givers. 

25 Churches do not have Training Unions. 

We need a fully-graded Training Union in each Church in 
this County. The Bible needs to be studied today. Systematic 
Givers need to be developed and all need to be trained for more 
efficient living. This v/ill come to pass when fathers and moth- 
rs and those who are older come to realize that we need to train 
ourselves and to help train those who are younger. To me, there 
is no finer o" ganization than the Training Union which is "The 
Church Training." 

With this report before us we were led to see the possibili- 
ties and the worth of Training Unions as Miss Lois Turbyfill 
capably discussed, "Developing Convictions about the Training 
Unicn." 

The congregation sang, "The Morning Light is Breaking," 
after M^hich Mrs. A. Z. Jamerson read the W. M. U. report. 
This was adopted and is as follows: 

"As we view the Woman's Work in the Yancey Association, 
there is nothing out- standing, but we do note a steady growth. 

We reached all cur goals for the year except the Hundred- 
Thousand Club, 

In January we nad an executive meeting of the Workers in 
local Societies arid in the Association at Bolens Creek, not all of 
the Societies were represented but Miss Hiliiard broadened our 
views of the work by teaching the Year Book. 

We so believe the time has come when more doors will be 
open to the women that their lives will shine forth to a greater 
task for our Master. 

We are glad to say there are four new Missionary Societies, 
three Girls' Auxiliaries, one Royal Ambassador Chapter, and three 
Sunbeam Bands This nearly doubles the number of organizations. 

It is our hope that tliis year will find us putting into prac- 
tice that we know and striving harder to enlist more women and 
young people — "That the generations to come might know." 

Following this report a Pageant, "The Light Bearer", was 
presented by the Missijnary Union. 

The Benediction was pronounced by A. Z. Jamerson. 

Second Day, Morning Session 

This session opened with the singing of the Hymn, "I Gave 
My Life for Thee." R. C. Arrowood led in prayer. 

11. E. Donahoe combined the devotional thought, "Develop- 
ing Convictions about Teaching", with his report as Sunday 
School Superintendent. The following figures were included: 

Total Number of Church Members last year 4573 

Total Number of Church Members this year 4697 

Sunday School Enrollment last year 3288 

Sunday School Enrollment this year 2856 

It was pointed out that there was a loss in enrollment, a part 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 



of which could be accounted for by the large number of Yancey 
County young men and women who are in the Armed Forces and 
others who have left the county and are working in defense jobs. 
Report was adopted. 

S. W. Shufford lead and spoke to this report, "Developing 
Convictions about Temperance and Public Morals." The report 
Was adopted and follows: 

"We sit on a volcano, and swat at a fly. So far as public 
health is concerned. We see our people die premature deaths, 
we see homes wrecked, wc see our loved ones go insane, and 
we see our children born soft brained, and deformed, because of 
the use of Alcholic Drugs. And not one gesture from the Health 
Department, or one murniLr from the public ' and but little inter- 
ference from the membership of our Churches. 

It is a proven fact that there is nothing produced or manu- 
factm-ed in the United States of America, that deteriorates human 
strength, or effects the public morals of our fine country, than 
docs the use of Alcholic Beverages. And as long as we sit silent, 
and serve parties, and politics, we will permit the most destruc- 
tive principles and force under heaven to devour the morals, and 
virtues of our people. In the name of Almighty God, I challenge 
eveiy child of Christ, to confirm their feeble knees, and lift up 
those hands that hang down, and put on the whole armor of God, 
and go after the public enemy number one, Alcohol. 

E. G. Adkins read the Hospital report under this topic, "De- 
veloping Convictions about the Ministry to the Sick." The report 
was adopted and is found below: 

"One day Jesus, our Savior and Lord, said to those who were 
fjllowing Him, "I was sick and ye visited me." They asked Him, 
"When saw we Thee sick and visited Thee?" Jesus said, "Inas- 
much as ye did it unto one of the least of my brethren, even these 
least, ye did it unto me." Today I believe, He is calling to each 
of us to minister to the sick. 

Twenty years ago we began in a definite way to follow the 
commands of Jesus Christ by establishing a hospital at Vv'inston- 
Salem, Ten years ago, 1933, 2,551 patients were treated. This means 
that on an average 59 patients were treated per day. This year 
7,636 patier.ts have been treated. This means that 232 patients 
each day, on an average, have been ministered to by the hospital. 

We are prouder, however, that our contributions to the hos- 
pital have made possible the increase of free patient days from 
8,^)53 to 19,429 over the ten year span. 

Our hearts, also, should rejoice that there are now 15 medi- 
cal students and nurses who have volunteered for Special Christ- 
ian Service. Not only are we ministering to the sick bodies who 
pass through the hospital, but we are making possible training 
for those who will go to the "Outer Fringes" of the earth to min- 
ister as Jesus would have them minister. 

In this county this year we gave $530.74 on Mother's 
Day to express our love for God as we minister through the hos- 
pital to those who need our help. It cost $5.65 each day per per- 
son, therefore we were responsible for one patient being treated 
for days or 94 patients receiving treatment for one day. 
Las^t year on Mother's Day we gave $280.99, this year we gave 
$491.74, and let us now determine to make it $800.00 on Mother's

Day 1945. Remember Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give 
than to receive." 

Miss Louise Jamerson, who graduated, from Mars Hill this 
year, read the follovvnr)g report on Christian Education. The re- 
port was adopted: 

"A Christian College has been defined as an Institution that 
is based upon the conviction that in the Christian Faith are val- 
ues which are not to be obtained elsewhere, and that these are of 
prime importance in the process of education." 

Because of these convictions North Carolina Baptist have es- 
tablished two senior colleges and a number of junior colleges in 
order that their youth might obtain these values. These colleg- 
es are: Mars Hill, Campbell, Gardner-Webb, Wingate, Wake For- 
est and Meredith. On each Campus is an organization known as 
the Baptist Student Union, an organization made up of the dif- 
ferent organization? such as the Sunday School, Training Union, 
The Young Woman's Auxiliary. The Youth Temperance Council, 
The Volunteer Band, composed ^f th:se who have dedicated their 
lives to Christian service, and the Ministerial Conference for 
those young men who are preparing themselves for the ministry. 
Through the work of this union students get training in these 
organizations which is to help them in later life. 

Christian Colleges ^\ere founded for the pur'oos'^ of h-^lping 
to build Christian Character in North Carolina Youth, and in so 
doing to help build a Christian World Order. The man who h^.s 
a Christian education has reached a goal which enables him to 
apprehend, to consider, to distinguish to abstain and to prefer. 
It is up to us to see that the youth of our state and our world 
attnin this goal. 

W. M Kendall, Teacher of Bible, Mars Hill College, spoke to 
this renort challenging our hearts and deepening our vision and 
strengthening our determination to that which Jesus Christ want- 
ed us to do. 

The Moderator called the Association to the transact^'on of 
business at this time. 

Attention was calJfd to the fact that ther« were Church'^s 
within the Association v/hich were having problems and wanted 
help. The following Advisory Committee for Pastors and Church- 
es was appointed: W. M. Gardner, J, H. Black, H M Alley. 
Arthur Thomas, S. W. Shufford. 

The Association was reminded of its decision in the Pastor- 
Doacon Conference to give its Associational Worker a $100 love 
gift. 

It was decided to have a truck from the Orphanage to come 
Sentem.ber 11th for apples. 

"Majestic Sweetness Sits Enthroned" was sung by the con- 
gregation. 

Miss Laura Mae ITilliard in the absence of the Vacation Bible 
School Director, Mrs. Konneth Robertson, read the Bible School re- 
port. It was adopted and is given below: 

"In Luke 2-52 we read, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and 
is stature, and in favor with God and man." Believing that 
J.-^sus Christ is our guide and that boys and o>irls should grow as 
He grew, we have Vacation Bible schools. This year in our coun- 
ty we set as our goal — tlnrty-two Bible Schools. This dream 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13 



would have become a reality, but a quarantine, because of an in- 
fantile paralysis epidemic, was felt necessary. So far, we have 
had twenty-five schools v/ith an enrollment of 885, and an aver- 
age attendance of 663. Three schools — Claymound, Blue Rock 
and Young's Chapel had two aays. From these schools we will 
send to the Indian Orphanage at Pembroke, N. C, $138.59 and 
eight dresses. 

Also, this year, a school was provided for the colored boys 
and girls of I>urnsville — Twenty-six pupils were enrolled and 
they gave $5.00 for the Indian Orphanage. 

We thank God for His guidance and seek His leadership this 
year as the plans are made for Bible Schools and as they are 
carried out." 

Ade Buchanan read the annual report for 1943 from the 
Orphanage. Included in this report was the fDllowing paragraphs: 

"The Orphanage has cared for during 1943, 698 in the two 
homes, 23 in boarding homes, and 60 in their own homes. We 
have been able to place a larger number than ever before, thus 
enabling us to be of greater service to more children. 

In our enthusiasm to win the war, in our anxiety about our 
boys who are at the front giving their full measure of devotion 
we should not overlook the things for which we are fighting. We 
must win the war, tut in winning it let us continue to make men 
and women who will be worthy and capable of rebuilding a shock- 
ed world and carrying on the work of the Kingdom of God, Each 
day 600 children must depend upon friends of the Orphanage for 
support. These friends h.ave not failed in the past and are not 
going to fail now 

On account of the increased cost of living the monthly con- 
tributions and 'i'hanksgiving offering should be larger this year 
than they have ever been before. 

In the name of Ciiriot whose love for the Orphan child was 
supreme and as an opportunity for enriching our own lives _ let 
us dedicate ourselves lo the task of supporting and training the 
boys and girls committed to our care," 

In the closing moments H. M. Alley discussed ''The Church 
Teaching." 

The Congregation stood a? the Pianist played, "My Faith 
Looks Up to Thee." Th? sirty-seventh annual session of the 
Yancey Baptist Association adjourned after the Benediction was 
pronounced by Pyler Mr-Mahan.

After the business session, the congregation stood and sang, 
''Come, Thou Almighty King." 

This was followed by a period of inspiration and information 
under the general theme, "We Would See Jesus as King in Our 
State." The following reports were read and adopted: 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

Spiritual growth is an essential in every Christian life. It is 
impossible to stand still and remain Christian. What one reads 
v/iil decerniine in large measure what one ihinks, what one believes 
and what one does. Good reading matter is one of the best ways 
of getting inf(;3mation ab'jut any of the problems of life, and es- 
pecially is this true of the spiritual life. 

There are certain vital food elements which must be given to 
th i physical body if it is to grow and thrive. Neglect in these 
matters will result in broken health, disease and death, prematur- 
ely. The spiritual life, in like manner, must b-e fed or it too will 
die. 

An iiiiormcd Christian is an enlisted Christian, an active 
Christian, Without reading, it is difficult to gain much knowledge 
and information. Without kr^owledge and information, it is diffi- 
cult f.;r one to become very active in spiritual matters. 

In Proverbs, 4:1-8, we are instructed to get knowledge and 
understanding. In 2 Timothy 2:15, we are again instructed to 
study m order that we may show ourselves apprr.v^ed unto God, a 
workman who needeth not to be ashamed. In Matthew 28:19, 20, 
after the resurrection of Jesus, when He appeared unto the Dis- 
ciples :tnd gave unto them the Command to Go, we find that it 
included teaching, preaching, leading people to believe on the 
Lord Jesus Christ. 

Let's take a look at some of the reading matter made avail- 
c.ble to ail our people 

The Bible is the first and the Must book in every Christian's 
life. It is the source of All Light because it is the V/ord of God. 
There are some other books and reading matter that will tend to 
broaden ones vision, ones outlo:k oon life. For those living in 
North Carolina, "The Biblical Recorder", our state Dencminational 
paper should be in every home. It will keep us informed as to 
the work in the State. It is net expensive in c.ist and is a great 
paper. It v/ili lead us into greater fields of service. 



\ 



8 MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Next, and equally important is "Charity and Children", pub- 
lished by the Baptist Orphanage. This paper, with its heart- 
searching items, and editorials, will warm our hearts, and make 
us more devoted to duty in the matter of our orphan children. 
Every Sunday School should iinclude this paper in its b*udget for 
literature. The "Home Mission Fields", a paper devoted to the 
mission program in the South, will make us more informed and 
more mission minded. "The Commission", our Foreign Mission 
paper, is one that fits perfectly into our Baptist doctrine, and 
philosophy as Missionary is part of our great name. This period- 
ical will, if read by our people, m.ake us more av/are of the ex- 
pansiveness of the World Mission Program. It will inform us 
along the lines of the Great Commission of the church, 

V/e, as Baptist, must become Missionary in Spirit and in 
Truth, if we are to meet the challenge that has been opened up 
before us in these days. These publications will tend to give us 
Vision and Power. Let's read them! I believe that it is God's 
will that we do this! 

Respectfully sub*mitted, 
H. G. BAILEY 

REPORT ON HOSPITALS 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital was incorporated in 1922 
and received its first patient May 28, 1923. Originally planned as 
a 100-bed institution, it was enlarged in 1942 to a capacity of 
247 beds and 55 bassinets. 

The underlying purpose of the Baptist Plospital has always 
been medical care for the poor. Its caliber of service was enhanced 
many times over when the Wake Forest Medical School became a 
four-year school in 1941 and was located adjacent to the Bap- 
tist Hospital. When the Baptist Hospital became a teaching hos- 
pital, its purpose became two^fold — teaching and healing, the 
twin endeavors of Christ. 

The Baptist Hospital operates one of the fullest approved 
schools of nursing in the South. At the present time it has an 
enrollnient of about 150 young ladies receiving professional train- 
ing under Christian auspices. V/hile the most rigid scientific 
training is given the girls, the hospital takes great pride in the 
Christian and humane attitude it develops in these girls. 

Of the 8,000 patients admitted as bed patients each year, 
slightly over 4,000 of these are service patients who pay no doc- 
tor's fee, and who pay but a slight portion of their hospiptal ex- 
penses. During 1944 approximately 3,000 of these service pa- 
tients paid absoltuely rothing toward their hospital bill. It is 
toward the expense of these patients that the money given on 
Mother's Day each year is used. In addition to the free bed pa- 
tients the hospital, as stated above, gives diagnostic examinations 
to approximately 20,000 free patients who are not admitted to 
the hospital each year. The cost to the hospital of free service 
lendered in 1944 was $198,648.92. 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 9 



The religious program is under the direction of a full-time 
Chaplain and Student Secrexary. This fine and fruitful service is 
made possible in part by the ig-enerosity of Mr. C. M. Scott of 
High Point, North Carolina, who contributes tov/ard the cost of 
the program^ There have been rnany conversions and rededica- 
tions in the hosjjitaL 

North Carolina Baptists have developed, in their hospital, 
one of the greatest medical centers in our country, and at the 
same time one of the strongest influences for the cause of Christ 
that exists in any land. Its huge opportunities for serving as an 
agency of mercy, as a means of teaching, and as a means of 
spreading the influence of Christ are a challenge to the generous 
heart of our great denomination that its program will not be re- 
stricted by a lack of finances. It is self-supporting with the ex- 
ception of its charity v/ork, and it is for this merciful side of its 
program that North Carolina Baptists this year are giving over 
$100,000 through the Mother's Day Gift. 

Last year we gave $547.45, but this year let our goal be 
$700.00. Twenty-three churches had a part in this gift, but this 
year let us resolve that each church, thirty-two of them, will re- 
member to say, ''Thank you, Lord Jesus" for ail that ycu have 
done for me. He Himself said, "'Inasmuch as ye have done it unto 
one of ihe least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto Me."

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE 

God islove, and He so io\ed the World that He have His only 
begotten Son, and that Son so loved that He gave His life for 
ail — men, women, children. This One who lives today in the 
hearts of those who know and believe in Him said, "Inasmuch as 
ye did it unto one of the least of these ye did it unto Me." 

Last year we, as North Carolina Baptists cared for approxi- 
mately 700 children in the Mills Home and Kennedy Home, 
through Mother's Aid and in boarding homes, and in addition to 
this, orphanage representatives rendered perhaps their best ser- 
vice to more than 300 children, by helping lamilies work out their 
domestic problems. Through these faithful efforts more than a 
thousand children were t'ided. 

It costs $675.00 a day to care for the large family now in 
the orphanage. Last year we had 22 churches to give to this 
noble undenaking, and these gave $1410.37 Surely the individu- 
als who .gave and the or,ganjzed groups which gave heard Jesus 
say, '.Well done, thou good and faithful servant". Surely Jesus' 
heart was grieved because the other ten churches in our Asso- 
ciation did not hear His call and did not see a field "White unto 
harvest." It is our prayer that this year every church will give 
as Jesus would have them give, remembering that He said, "Suf- 
fer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of 
such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

Miss Geneva Hunter led the group to see God's Harvest 
Fields as she sang, "How Long." 

At this time the Moderator recognized Ben Bushyhead. He 
thrilled those present as he spoke out of his heart on, "We 
Would See Jesus as King of the Peoples of our Homeland." 

Then Dr. Hatcher had our eyes look upon "distant fields" as 
he led us to think about, "Jesus as King in all the World."

Lord of Our Association." 

In the absence of J. H. Black, the Moderator asked W. M. 
Gardner to fill the chair as he led in a discussion under the 
general topic, "We Would See Jesus Through Our Giving." 

Mrs. Andrew Johnson moved the group to a keener under- 
standing of the importance of the Training Program as she read 
hei report and spoke in its behalf. The report was adopted and 
is as follows: 

REPORl ON TRAINING UNION 

Jesas would have His followers to be trained, efficient ser- 
vants because "The Fields are White unto Harvest." He would 
have all enlisted in a training program and the Training Union 
could make possible the realization of the desire of our Friend 
and Guide, Jesus Christ. There is a place for all as we now have 
five Unions— the Story Hour, The Junior Union, The Intermed- 
iate Union, the Y^^^^^S People's Union, the Adult Union. They 
are all essential if we are to be ^'busy about our Father's busi 
ness," but how we need to have the Adults enlisted. They need 
the training and their presence is needed that the other unions 
might be helped by their influence, leadership and advice. 

We have seven churches out of thirty-two reporting one or 
more unions. Our total enrollment is 385, and remember, please, 
that our church membsrship is 4,800. Jesus' call to discipleship, 
"Come after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men," 
needs tu be heard afresh Ly us. 

This year may we accept the challenge of the one who leads 
"In green pasturevS" and beside still waters," but who has com- 
manded us to go out "Into the highways and hedges and compel 
them to come in," as we give ourselves to improving the training- 
program of our churches. ^ Can we not hear Him say, "Deny 
yourself, take up your cross and follow me." 

Respectfully submitted, 
MRS. ANDREW JOHNSON, Training Union Director 

Mrs. A Z. Jamerson read and spoke to the W. M. U. report 
under the topic, "We Vv'oujd See Jesus Through the Eyes of th(? 
Missionary Union." The report was adopted and follows:

W0MAN;S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

If we would see Jesiis through the Women and Youn^ People 
of our county, tve must first see ourselves, surrendered to the 
Master's call, and we do feei that the women and young people 
of Yancey arc seekin.s;' to help the advancement to Christ's King- 
dom. We know that many nave received a glimpse, and are will- 
ing to present themselves as a vessel to be molded for the Mas- 
ter's cause, and we believe that they are hearing the Pvlaster say 
to ihem, "Go ye, into all the world," realizing they can go to, 
ail the world by the way of prayer, study and giving. 

We are happy in the foci that some of cur goals have been 
reached, our officers have been busy, the local societies have 
been ^^ol•king in the vineyard, and all together we have been at- 
tempting to make Christ known to each community in a greater 
way. Vv'e are thankful for the work that has been done, but feel 
that the future holds much mere work to be accomplished for 
the on-going of the Kingdom 

There have been 14 Mission Study Classes, 6 new tithers, 13 
new societies and an increase in gifts to the different causes.' 
Last fall we were highly exalted to see fourteen young girls'^ 
crowned as Queens from three churches. This was the first Cor- 
onation • t^rvice ever held in cur county. 

May this year biing much joy to our hearts as we go ori 
striving to do and go where the Master leads.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT 
Jesus is giving us a word of challenge, said through John, 
"If ye love me, keep my commandments," and in Matthew 28:20, 
Jesus said, "teaching them, to obteerve all things." In order to 
keep these commandments Paul said, "Study to show thyself ap- 
proved unto God, a workiuan that needeth not to be ashamed,, 
rightly dividing the word of truth."

In cur Suxday Schools, the thirty-two in this county, we 
teach 832 hours in a year. Does this express our love for God 
and fulfill His command to teach and study His Word? No, we 
will agree, this is inadequate, therefore, we must have the addi- 
tional hours of teaching made possible throug'h Vacation Bible 
Schools. 

This year we added 320 hours to the hours taught in our 
Sunday Schools. In these schools, and every church we reached 
with a school, we enrolled 1135, had an average attendance of 
S87, and gave $156.10 to the Cooperative Program. We had 
twenty-five workers not only helped in their own church but ser- 
ved as teacher.-, and principals in other schools. They v/ere: Mrs. 
Erank Harris, Clara Mae Smith, Betty Lee Fox, Peggy Ann Fox, 
Mary Evelyn Hensiey, Bobbie Ruth Banks, Marjorie Harris, June 
Smith, Doris Penland. Mrs. B. R. Peniand, Hope Bailey, Evelyn 
Briggs, Joyce King, Rev. and Mrs. Jessie Hughes, Geneva Hunter, 
Nell Bailey, Rev. and Mrs. E. J. Hall, Rev. and Mrs. A. Z Jamer- 
son, Jouise Jamerson, Isolene Ray, Joy Johnson and Evelyn 
Hamrick. 

In additi ;n to these schools, we had a successful school in 
the colored churches of Burnsville, Baptist and Methodist, with 
an enrollment of 28 and an average attendance of 16. This Union 
scho'j.l was sponsored and conducted by the Y. \V. A. Girls of 
Burnsville, 

This should liing joy to our hearts but challenge us to a 
greater undertaking next year — a ten-day school in every church 
conducted by the pastor of that church. We are grateful for 
God's guidance and goodness this year, and pray that He will 
guide and lead next yeRv. 

E. J. HALL, Bible School Director 

Arthur Thomas under the general subject, "We Would See 
Jesus Through the Eyes of Our Sunday S'Chool" read and spoke to 
the Sunday Schcol Report. It was adopted and is as follows: 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Jesus came and spake unto them, ''All authority hath b<een 
given unto Me in He^^ven and on earth. Go ye therefore, and 
make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the 
Father, and of the Son and of the Hcip (Jhost, teaching them to 
observe all things Vvhatsoever I commanded you." To begin with, 
we must admit that these orders v/ere not carried out by the 
Sunday Schools in our county during the last associational year 
because the churches reported 4,800 members and only 2,659 en- 
rolled in Sunday School with an average attendance of 1,835. 
You realize that the Sunday School figures include young child- 
ren and unchurch(5d men and women. Truly, we agree, many 
were not in our Sunday Schools — many who are lost and many 
who are members of cur churches were not constrained to come 
to study and to be taught. There are no Standard Sunday Schools, 
and no one h dds the ''New Teachers" Diploma.

Three tliing'b I would call to our minds: first, we have and 
are failing- to recoj^niza our possibilities of introducing the lost 
to Jesus Christ in cur Sunday Schools; second, Jesus said, "I am 
the Light of the World," buc He also said, "Ye are the Light of 
the World" so the pupils need to be ah'le to see Jesus in the 
teachers and officers of our Sunday Schools; third, the unenlisted 
need to be made to feel chat the Sunday School needs them and 
that they need the Sunday School. 

This year may we work and pray that our Sunday Schools 
may be better Sunday Schools, glorifyiing rhe Master Teacher, 
Jesus Christ. Let us determine now, "To attempt great things 
fox God and expect great things from Him."

There were moments of meditation which included special music, 
"The Upper Room" by Miss Geneva Hunter; prayer by Jesse Hughes 
Hymn, "Come Thou Fount; and responsive reading led by Miss 
Nell Bailey. 

During the business session the following committees were 
appointed.

Reception of New Churches — E. J. Hall, Arthur Thomas, R. L.

B. M. Tomberlin. Mrs. Craig Woody. 

After the business session the congregation stood and sang, 
"Make Me A Channel of Blessing". 

The Introductory message was brought by R. L. Hinson with 
"Finding and Doing God's Will" as the subject. 

This was followed by a period of inspiration and information 
under the general theme, "Doing God's Will in Our State". 

H. G. Bailey, Orphanage representative, read the Orphanage 
report and it was adopted. Dr. I. G. Greer, General Superintendent, 
Thomasville, spoke to this report using as a subject, "LfCt US 
Make Men". 

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE 

The Baptist Orphanage at Thomasville and Kennedy Home are 
now caring for more than One Thousand Orphaned and unfortunate 
children. Last year was a very large year in the institutions his- 
tory. The sad part about the situation is this "that more than 500 
applications had to be turned away for lack of room and equipment 
to provide living quarters". If all the churches in the Yancey As- 
sociation would place a regular and consistant system of offerings 
and other assistance this condition would b'e greatly relieved. What 
about the Once-a-month offering and the gift of at least one days 
wages for the Thanksgiving offering? 

^ During the 1945 Associational year the churches in Yancey As- 
sociation gave in produce to the Orphanage an amount equal to 
$2091.03. This amount is very small for our churches to contribute 
to a cause as worthy as this cause is and one that is so desperately 
in need of expansion in order to take care of the increased demand. 
I don't believe it is asking too much to ask every Sunday School 
in this association to initiate and operate a once a month offering 
for the orphanage and that this offering be a worthy one. I also 
bielieve it is not asking too much for our churches to gather in and 
send to these children, who otherwise will go hungry, a large amount 
of produce and fruits. We can also help by making many garments 
for these children since they "too" like to have nice things to wear. 
Bedding is also badly needed. There are so many wavs that we can 
help. Christ is looking on as we serve and as we fail to serve and 
It was He 'CHRIST' who said "In as much as ye have done it unto 
one of th€{ least of these my brethern you have done in also unto 
me. Therefore if we fail to minister to the needs of these we arc- 
failing to minister unto Christ. Is HE pleased with our services 
our contributions and our thoughts? ^ *

The war has left a world full of weepings and woes. Tragedy 
has visited most every hamlet and town. People are puzzled as to 
which way to turn and as to what to try to do. They 'are in great 
need of a new light that w^ill give thern a new faith and a new hope. 
Christian people have that LIGHT and that HOPE. Will they share 
with the people of the world? 

Our orphan children have made excellent use of their opportu- 
nities for training at the Orphanage. Many of them are now filling 
places of great responsibilities. Many of them are outstanding 
leaders in several fields. Yes: We must not let these little ones who 
need our assistance go unheeded. Please check with your church 
and determine the part you are willing to carry in this great work. 
Respectfully submitted, 

H. G. BAILEY, Committee. 

E. G. Adkins, Hospital representative, read the Hospital report. 
Charles Parker spoke to the report using this as a text, "Greater 
Works Shall Ye Do". The report was adopted. 

SUGGESTED ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT ON NORTH 
CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL— 1946 

Our Baptist Hospital has had another full and fruitful year. In 
the past few years its facilities to care for the sick have been great- 
ly increased. This is true for both those who do not have the mon- 
ey to pay for complete hospital care and those who have complicat- 
ed afflictions which the hospitals and doctors in most communities 
are not prepared to care for. 

The Out-Patient Clinic is now working in its enlarged and bet- 
ter equipped quarters. It is prepared to do the highest type of 
work cf examinig the sick, prescribing treatment for their ills, and 
giving some specialized treatments. After the examination, most of 
these can be treated back home by a local doctor or in a local hos- 
pital. There is now b'eing added to the clinic additional services 
in psychiatry and in eye and dental diseases. 

Along with the Out-Patient Clinic, there is operated the Private 
Clinic for those who are able to pay the regular standard fees for 
medical care. 

The sick who come to these clinics and need to enter the Bap- 
tist Hospital for treatment are then admitted as bed pat- 
ients, is so far as room permits. Due to lack of space, it is im- 
possible for the hospital to take care of all who need to be admit- 
ted. Because of this lack of space, our hospital has available a great 
deal cf the finest medical skill which it is now able to use to re- 
lieve suffering. 

The Mother's Day Offering enables our hospital to care for 
those who do not have the money to pay their full bills. Those who 
are able to pay in full are expected to do so, because, if they fail to, 
it will take help from those who are in actual need. No person who 
is examined in the Out-Patient Clinic and no service patient who 
is admitted to the hospital is charged any doctor's bill at all, whe- 
ther or not he pays his hospital bill. More than half of those who are 
cared for by our hospital are such service patients, and many of 
them are unable to pay anything at all. Our hospital does far more 
free service for the poor than any other denominational hospital in 
the South and stands among the first in America in the amount it 
does. Last year this free service cost the hospital over $167,000.

Our Baptist Hospital operates one of the best schools in nursing: 
in the South. It seeks the finest young: women, mentally, physically, 
and spiritually, to train for a Christian ministry of healing. It 
invites young women from cur Baptist homes and churches who are 
interested in giving their lives to this important profession to con- 
sider going there for their training. 

The new Department of Religion at our Baptist Hospital is 
being organized to render an effective spiritual ministry. This in- 
cludes visitation and counsel among the sick and burdened in the 
hospital, Bible instruction and a religious program for students, the 
effort to help create a Christian spirit through all the work of the 
hospital, and carrying to our churches the information concerning 
the v/ork of our hospital. 

The urgent and outstanding need of our Baptist Hospital is the 
construction of a new south wing. This would provide 140 new beds, 
which we so greatly need, especially to care for the more seriously 
ill who need private rooms. Additional operating and delivery rooms 
and X-ray facilities would be included. It would provide adequate 
kitchen and storage room, where the hospital is now seriously hand- 
icapped for lack of space. 

"Jesus said one day, and I believe is saying to us today, "I was 
sick and ye visited Me — Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of the 
least of these ye did it unto Me." Have Vv^e ministered to Jesus this 
year in a manner that would be pleasing to Him, as we have prayed 
and given to our Hospital at Winston-Salem Is each church, and 
each individual in each church able to hear Him say today, "Well 
done, thou good and faithful servant". 

We are grateful for what has been done — this is our record, 
26 churches gave $567.18. 

rt is sad, but true, we can not use that opportunity which has 
passed. Yet, if God lets us live another year, we can pray more de- 
finitely for the work, and give as He would have us give.

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

In first Corinthians 3:11 we read — "For other foundation can 
no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ". That one, our 
Saviour and Lord, was and is the Master teacher. In His last words 
before His ascension He commanded us to "Teach" — teach boys, 
girls, men and women the Truth — God's Word. 

Last year we had enrolled in our Sunday Schools 2771 with an 
average attendance of 18D6. Yet, we know that there were many 
unreached individuals in oui- county. Christ is interested in each 
person and I believe that He would have each individual enrolled in 
a Sunday School, and each individual enrolled truly taught that the 
lost might come to know Him as Saviour and the Saved come to 
recognize Him as Lord and Master. The most constructive effort 
during the year, perhaps, was a county-wide Sunday School Study 
Course. The good fruits of this week's study is still 'b'eing realized. 

To be honest, we must admit, that our best has not been given 
to this vital phase of Kingdom building. God is ready to give us a 
new leaf and let us begin to write a better page.

U. report and 'it was adopted. Miss Ruth Martin of Asheville spoke 
to the report helping us to see and to feel the value of the Woman's 
Missionary Society, the Sunbeam Band, the Junior and Intermediate 
Girls' Auxiliary and the Junior and Intermediate Ambassador 
Chapter. 

REPORT ON W. M. U. 

As we think of another year slipping: by, we must stop and 
think of pur success and failures during the year. We are not satis- 
fied with the work that has been done, and we also know we must 
be more sincere and loyal to every phase of God's work before we 
can really "Tell the Story to the Nations Effectively". 

A small number of our women and young people of Yancey 
are striving in an humble way to acknowledge Christ through our 
W. M. U. Seven churches, out of' the thirty-two have a W. M. S. 
or a Junior Organization. 

We had a very interesting leadership conference in January, 
with most of the leaders of the different organizations present. 

Progress along all lines in the work seem slow, but we do 
notice some improvement. Our gifts have increased, also the num 
ber of tithers, and we are beginning in a greater way to see that 
God did net command His followers to carry His Gospel to all peo- 
ple, and provide no financial method of support. 

Our Mission Study classes increased last year. There is a grow- 
ing consciousness on the part of the adults and young people that 
they should know more about the vital elements of His Kingdom 
work. 

. We would not try to estimate the efforts that Young People 
and their Leader, Mrs. G. L. Hensley, have given to the work. 

We did not make any gains in organizations, but we do hope 
that each one has been blessed by trying to hold fast and expand 
the work of the already functioning organizations. 

May we see the plan of God, 

May we hear the message, "Thy Will be done in me". 
May we hear the Master say to our hearts, "Look unto Me*'. 
When we all see the plan and hear the message, then we can 
say, "Thy Will be done in our lives. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. A. Z. JAMERSON, W. M. U. Supt. 

Mrs. Andrew Johnson gave the Training Union report and it was 
adopted. The Training Union Secretary, Harvey T Gibson, came at 
this time and spoke using this as a subject, "Doing God's Will in 
The Local Churches Through The Training Union." 

REPORT ON TRAINING UNION 

Jesus said, in calling His Disciples, "Come after Me, and I will 
niake you to become fishers of men.^' Later He said, '.As the Father 
hath sent Me so send I you," thus we are under obligation to have 
^.J^^P^"^ Union so that we might be used by Christ to help make 
effective witnesses of all of His children. 

We have only seven churches with 'Training Unions Twenty- 
five churches are not letting Christ train through them— they are not 
hearing Christ say, "Come, and I will train you to become fishers 
of men."

Even in the churches with Txainincr Unions too few are enlisted. 
We had the following number enrolled in the different groups: 
Story Hour, 32; Juniors, 50; Intermediates, 93; Young People, 99 and 
Adults, 70. 

Let's go on being used by Christ to hasten the day when every 
knee Vrill Low and every tongue confess Him as King of Kings and 
Lord of Lords. . . 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. ANDREW JOHNSON 

The congregation stood and sang, "I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord". 
After this M. 0. Owens, pastor, First Baptist church, Marion, N. C. 
led us to see in a deeper sense the real value of worship as he 
spc'ke on this subject, "Doing Gcd's Will Through the Weekly Pray- 
er Service and the V>'orship Hour". 

The congregation stood in thoughtfulness and prayerfulness as 
E. J. Hall sang, "Thy Will Be D:ne". Benediction was pronounced 
by A. Z. Jamerson. 

First Day, Evening Session 

The messengers reassembled at 7:30 p. m. This session opened 
with a song service under the direction of E. J. Hall. Miss Laura 
Mae Hiiiiard led in prayer. 

E. J, Hall gave a rep-ort of the Bible Schools. It is as follows: 

REPORT ON BIBLE SCHOOLS 

Today we are world ccnzcious, representatives from the Nations 
S-ze meeting to consider plans for establishing a lasting peace. Yet, 
at this same time the Nations are at v.'ork perfecting a destructive 
power — a power that will blov: the world to pieces. There v»-ill be 
no peace until Christ is enthroned in the hearts of men, women and 
children and His Kingdom come to earth. 

During the vacaiion m.onths it was our desire and prayer that 
the boys and girls of this county have the opportunity to come to 
know Jesus better that they might have peace in their ovm hearts 
and be used by Him in hastening the day when hate vrould be wiped 
ficm cur miinds and love v/culd dominate the thinking and living of 
all the peoples of all the Nations. 

Twenty-six churches provided a Bible School, under God's guid- 
ance, for the boys and girls of their respective communities. We 
had an enrollment cf 972 v.ith an average attendance of 721. These 
pupils gave $112.03 to help tell the "Good News" that Jesus loves 
and Jesus saves. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. J. HALL. Bible School Director 

At this meeting, phases of Bible School work were presented.

Eternal", J. H. Black read the 40th Psalm and led the opening prayer. 

The group was called to the transaction of business. The Reso- 
lution committee gave the following report and it was adopted. 

REPORT ON RESOLUTIONS 

One of the good things God has given us is the capacity to en- 
joy the fellov/ship of our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, and we are 
grateful that we can gather once a year in our annual associational 
meeting for worship, for inspiration, and for fellowship. 

We could not say "Thauk You" to each one who has helped to 
make this meeting the success it has been but to all those who pray- 
ed, those who came, those who brought God's message to us we are 
deeply grateful. 

To the members of Byrds Chapel church we would like to 
express our thanks for the gracious welcome they extended us and 
for their kind hospitality and capacity to anticipate all our needs 
and meet them. May the Lord ever bless them. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS LLOYD ELLIOTT 
JACK LAUGHRUN 
E. J. ANGEL 

The congregation stood and sang "Breathe On Me". 
S. W. Shuford came at this time and gave his report on Tem- 
perance and spoke to the same. It was adopted as read. 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

There is nothing more degrading, and no more atrocious insult 
to American Civilization, than the liquor traffic It is a monster in 
disguise, a wolf in sheep's clothing. 

It poisons the social atmosphere; it takes the workmans sav- 
ings. It roDs the hireling of his wage. It robs the home of peace, it 
puts a barrier between the husband and wife, and deprives the child 
of parental care, that only father and mother can give It wrecks 
more virtues, creates more divorces, destroys more physical health, 
kills more human beings than any other destructive force. 

Statistics prove that it shipwrecks an average of 150.000 hom^s 
yearly.^ It costs the United States over $1,884,027,982 for crime 
pauperism, and insanity, each year on average 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13 



Permit me to present for your serious consideration a picture 
in the form of statistics. 

We have, in the United States, over 3,600,000 hard drinkers. 
125,000 who die from the direct effects of alcohol, out of which 
5000 take their lives by suicide, yearly. 

Eighty five per cent of the crime, 75 per cent of the pauperism, 
and 50 per cent of the insanity is caused by the use of alcohol. 

Sixty per cent of the inmates of cur reformatory schools are 
descendants of parents, or grandparents that were addicted to the 
use of hard liquor. 

Dear brother and sister, should we not as a convention of 
broad-minded people, make a bold effort toward arousing the slum- 
bering sense§, and open the eyes of cur Federal Government to the 
stern realities of the picture that now confronts our nation. We 
make an earnest appeal to the redeemed of God, to rise up and de- 
clare themselves, and efforts against this great evil, else we will 
suffer a great judgment at the hands of God. 

Respectfully submitted, 
S. W. SHUFORD 

E. G. Adkins filled the chair as A. Z. Jamerson, the moderator, 
spoke on this subject, "Doing God's Will Through The Cooperative 
Program," 

After this, our hearts were touched and moved as J. H. Black 
discussed, "Doing God's Will in our Evangelistic Efforts," 

The congregation sang, "Have Thine Own Way". 

Miss Laura Mae Hilliard read the Christian Education report 
and it was adopted as read. 

REPOP.T ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

We, as Southern Baptists, should realize the importance and 
value of Christian Education. Our future is determined by the kind 
of leaders we have and leaders come from our schools. How import- 
ant it is that these leaders come from schools where Christian in- 
fluences are pre-dominant! 

Our seminaries and the Woman's Missionary Training School 
are crowded to capacity. Likev/ise in our colleges the enrollments 
have been larger than ever before. 

In order to meet the demands made by these large enrollments, 
additional provisions must ba made to maintain their high stand- 
ards. At this time most of our seminaries, colleges, and academies 
are putting forth financial campaigns to provide for buildings, 
equipment, additional teachers, and adequate endowments. 

The total amount sought in the campaigns of all these schools 
is nearly $25,000,000. This amount, seemingly large, is less than 
the endowment of Harvard or Yale, and if v;e remain in the field 
of higher education, a greater financial support must be provided for 
our schools. 

Through the cooperative program there will be increased operat- 
ing funds for Baptist colleges. From the cooperative program in 1946 
the total amount fcr all the schools will be $300,000. This will help 
greatly in meeting the costs of operating without greatly boirdening 
the individual student.

It is our duty and privilege to help make possible greater op- 
portunities in the field of Christian Education for the youth of our 
nation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. KENNETH ROBERTSON 

The group heard with much interest and feeling the message 
brought by M. H. Kendall on this subject, "The Acceptance of God's

A piano prelude preceded the opening of the Seventieth Annual 
Session of the Yancey Baptist Association.

County, to lead the music for the sessions and Miss Madge Carter 
served as pianist. The opening Hymns were ''Come Thou Almighty

HOSPITAL REPORT 

The North Carolina Hospital was inorpcrated in 1922 and re- 
ceived its first patient May 28, 1923. The Hospital now has a capa- 
city of 247 beds. The Out-Fatient building was opened July 1, 1945. 

Each year the hospital is able to admit approximately 8,000 
patients as bed patients. In addition, the present Out-patient facili- 
ties accomodate about 20,000. This makes a grand total of 28,000 
people who depend each year upon the Baptist Hospital for relief 
from pain. 

Of the 8,000 patients admitted as bed patients each year, slight- 
ly over 4,000 of these are service patients who pay no doctor's fee 
and who pay reduced hospital expenses. These patients are cared 
for by the love offering taken on Mother's day. We are grateful 
that 24 of our churches remem.bered that "it is more blessed to 
give than receive.'' The total gift was $534.94. It is our prayer 
that this coming year every church will bring an offering into the 
Lord's Treasury on Mother's Dty. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. WESTALL, Hospital Chairman. 

A discussion of the work of Baptist in North Carolina was effi- 
ciently and effectively led by W. K. McKee, Baptist Hr.spital, San-

Following lucnh served by the ladies of the Pleasant Grove

tion led by Miss Dorcas Mclver and Dawson Briggs with this theme, 
"Jesus, The Friend". 

Mrs. A. Z. Jamerson read the Woman's Missionary Union report. 
It was adopted as follows: 

W. M. U. REPORT 

"Go ye and make disciples of all Nations." V/e feel that some 
of the v/cmen in Yancey have heard the call, and as members of the 
Missionary Societies are striving to make disciples at home as well 
as to the uttermost part of the earth.

As we look back over the past year, we are glad that God has 
done great things for us, but we cannot be well pleased with what 
we have done for Hini. We have two new Societies and three Junior 
organizations. A good interest has been shown in the mission study 
classes, as well as the other phases of the work. The Missionary 
Societies and Junior Organizations gave more than the entire asso- 
ciation gave for Missions in 1933. 

At our Leadership Conference which met at the Mount Pleasant 
church in January, we were blessed as we planned for the coming 
year. Also, in December we had a very impressive Coronation 
Service v/hen eight Queens were crowned. 

But we must face the fact that we have 24 churches in our 
county that dc not have any of the missionary organizations, and 
if we are to keep our appointment with Jesus, we must be about 
His business in a field that is white unto harvest. 

Respectfully submitted, 

/Mrs. A. Z. JAMERSON, Superintendent. 

S. F. Dowis, Superintendent of Cooperative Missions, Atlanta, 
Ga., called our attention in a forceful manner to "Keeping Our Ap-

Orphanage Report and it was adopted as follows: 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Jesus v/as a friend of children when Hp was here walking among 
men and He v/onld h^ivo those of us who know Him today and fol- 
low the leadership of His spirit to h'e a friend to children — those' 
in our community and those who have been entrusted to us down at 
Kinston and Thomasville, and those not in cur State but scattered 
to the outer fringes of the world. 

Do you not hear th^^.se down an our home in Thomasville and 
Kinston saying, "Come do\vTi and help us?"' They are grateful for 
all that we do for tht?m and Christt has said, "It is more blessed 
to give than to receive." 

Let us resolve now to listen for His v 5ce as He pleads f(->r 
these children. Let us put the children in these two homes and the 
workers there on our orever list Then let us o-ive of our material 
possessions "as Jesus, the Great Shepherd, shall lead.

SATURDAY, MORNING SESSION 

The session was opened v/ith the singing of "The Light of the 
- World'' and "Near to the Heart of God". W. M. Gardner lifted our 
souls Godward with the devotional thought "Jesus, The Light". . 

S. W. Shuford brought the Temperance Report. It was adopted 
as read and is found below: 

^ TEMPERANCE REPORT 

In the year of 1946, we used 2,341,738 tons of food products 
to make liquor out of, in face of the fact that thousands of human 
beings are starving to death. We drank 15,000,000, barrels of beer; 
and, 3,420,573, gallons of wines. That is bonded products alone, 
say nothing of blockade liquors that we consumed. 

In the same fiscal year, we spent for liquor, and other alcoho- 
lic beverages, $8,7000,000,000. We spent for education in the same 
year, $3,522,007,441. For each single dollar that was put in the 
offering to all religious purposes, of all reliccious faiths, we paid 
$7.00 for alcoholic beverages. In other words, we spent seven times 
more for drinks of alcoholic nature, than we did for all christian 
causes. 

In God's name, let's go all out against the world's most de'^ 
structive force. 

Respectfully submitted, 

S. W. SHUFORD, Tem.pcrance Chairman.

We, the delegates and visitors to the Yancey Baptist Associa-

J. H. Black touched and moved the ^oup as he presented the 
imperative need and the challenge of "Keeping Our Appointment 
with Jesus After the Lost". 

B. J. Mclver filled the chair whil? A. Z. Jamerson spoke on 
this subject "Keeping Our Appointment With Jesus Through the 
Cooperative Program", 

At this time Mrs Andrew Johnson called our attention to i;he 
Training Union as she presented the r«]:ort which was adopted and 
is as follows: . . 

TRAINING UNION REPORT - 

It was important that Jesus called His disciples to follow Him 
and let Him train them before Ho sent them out to biear the good 
news. Today, it is important that our boys, girls, young people and 
adults hoar that same call to follow Jesus, to enroll in His School, 
that we might be taught and trained by Him. The Training Union 
offers a wonderful opportunity. 

If you have a Training Union in your Church, let us urge you 
to give it your best that ycu might bring honor and glory to the 
name of Jesus Christ. If you do not have a Training Union, let us 
urge you to begin now to pray and to plan to organize one under 
the leadership of Jesus Christ, the True Guide. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. ANDREW JOHNSON, Training Union Director. 

In speaking to the report under this heading "Keeping Our Ap- 
pointment With Jesus in the Work of the Training Union". Mrs, 
Johnson challenged our hearts with her enthusiasm and with heart- 
breaking truths. 

The Sunday School Report was read and adopted. It is as follows: 
SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Jesus, Our Saviour and Our Lord, the One v^^ho gathered His 
Disciples about Him and taught them is saying to each of us— 
"Come, fill your appointment with Me. . . Go teach all nations to 
observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." 

Are we doing this? In our county we have 4,982 church mem.;, 
bers and only 2,949 Sunday School mem-t-ers. We will remember, 
too, that this figure for the Sunday Schools includes all who are 
enrolled — the unchurched and the church member. 

Teams visited a m.ajority of the churches in February and sat 
down with the Sunday School Workers of these churchps to discuss 
and to think about the Sunday School, "The Teaching Agency of the 
Church" and then they shared ideas and experiences. A central 
training clinic was held in Burnsville. 

Let us now **Be busy about our Father's Business" — discover- 
ing those who should be reached for the Sunday School and enlist- 
ing those discovered. Then, let us be teachers of the Truth 'for it 
it is a "Lamp unto our feet and a light unto our pathway." In our 
hearts let us resolve to give our best t-o our local Sunday School 
and to the county-wide Sunday School Activities. 

Respectfully submitted, . . 

DAWSON BRIGGS. Superintendent. 

B. J. Mclver using as his subject "Keeping Our Appointment 
With Jesus in the "Work of the Sunday School" deepened our con- 
viction about this phase of the work and strengthened our determi- 
nation to be better workers. ^ 

The- Christian Education report was adopted as follows: 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

; f 



11 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

The Conception of education that one holds depends purely upon 
his philosophy of life, or upon the interpretation of the objectives 
of life. The important element for consideration is the contribti- 
tion that one makes to the world about him. 

If the indi\idual would live most effectively, our institutions 
must give to him the training that emphasizes the Fatherhood of 
Ood and the Brotherhood of man. 

This quest for divine truth has bfeen the goal since the begin- 
ning of time. The principle embodied in the Sermon on the Mount, 
and the text of the prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane are just as 
applicable today as they were in the days of old. 

Modem life with all of its complexity and illusions, with all of 
its dreams and its visions can become real only when there is a 
consciousness that there is a God who guides the destinies of men 
just as truly today, as a lighthouse brightens the way for a ship 
on a tractless sea. 

Respectfully submitted, 

B. M. TOMBERLIN, Chairman. 

The session was closed by an informative and inspiring message 
brcmght by M. H. Kendall, Mars Hill College, with this general 
theme: "Keeping Our Appointments With Jesus as we Walk With 
Him". 

After the t-enediction the seventieth annual session of the Yancey

PROCEEDINGS 
Friday Morning SessicBi 

A piano prelude preceded the opening of the seventy-first an- 
nual session of the Yancey Baptist Association, E. J. Hall served 
as chorister and Miss Madge Carter as pianist. 

Moderator A. Z. Jamerson called the Association to order with 
the announcement of the theme, ''Looking Unto the Pattern.^' "Come 
Thou Fount" was sung and W. M. Gardner led in prayer. Announce- 
ments were made and visitors were recognized. The visitors in our 
midst were: W. M. Gardner, W. L. McBee, E. S. Morgan, Claude 
Gaddy, L. L. Carpenter, S. F. Dowis, J. G. Blackburn. New pastors 
were welcomed: Nairm Phillips, Park W^hitson, Gordon Chrisawn, 
Claude Slagle„ 

Dawson Briggs led in special moments of worship with this as 
a theme, "Jesus, Our Pattern in Prayer.'' Misses Bobbie Ruth Banks 
and June Smith closed these moments with the singing o f * Neath 
the Old Olive Trees." 

D. R. Fonts, associate moderator, presided over the business 
session. B. M. Tomberlin and S. W. Shuford were nominated. B. M. 
Tomberlin was elected by a majority vote cast by the recognized 
delegates from the churches. D. R. Fouts was elected associate mod- 
erator and Dav/son Briggs as clerk. 

Arlhui Thomas brought a most challenging message using, 
"Looking Unto the Pattern" as a subject and Hebrews 8:55 as a 
text. The message was timely, well y)resented and touched the 
hearts of the group. 

This was followed by a period of discussion under this general 
theme, "Looking Unto the Pattern As We Build in North Carolina." 
E. J. Hall presented the report on Christian Literature. L. L. Car- 
penter spoke to this report. The report follows:

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

"He who reads knows and he who knows cares and he who 
cares g-ives." Thus it is of supreme importance that we subscribe 
to and use our Baptist Literature. Those in darkness need Christ 
and we who know Him need to be informed that we might prove 
ourselves "approved workmen." 

Every Baptist family should, we believe, have on its tables 
"The Biblical Recorder," "The Commission", Home Mission Fields. 
The truths found in these papers should find their way into the 
hearts of the members of the family — should be seed sown in good 
£ioii, springing up, bearing a harvest. 

We urge you to consider this matter. We plead with you to 
seek God's v/ill and do that which He leads you to do. 
Respectfully sutmitted, 
E. J. HALL 

B. J. Mclver presented the leport on Christian Education. The 
report as adopted follows. Claude Gaddy emphasized the truth of 
the report in his message on Christian Elducation. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Alert men for centuries have recognized the value of, and the 
need of Christian Education. Only this kind of education has beon 
debated. Christian people know what form education should take. 
His mind must be trained to value Christian Ethics. Our problem 
is basically theological. As Christians in the cause of our Kin.g, we 
need to prepare for our work. We cannot take an ignorant program 
and appeal to the intelligence of the people. The Government is now 
giving our Youth an opportunity to obtain an education on every 
hand, and we should see to it, that our Christian schools and col- 
leges in America should meet the need of the hour. 

We recognize the great need in our modern world for specializ- 
ed technical training. We must I'uild our schools where any student 
can find what he wants in our Chiistian Universities without hav- 
ing to go elsewhere to obtain it. We cannot afford to let our youth 
miss getting the spiritual and philosophic principles that will enable 
them to cope adequately with antagonistic philosophies. Education 
can be dangerous when it is not used to help mankind. When v/e get 
knowledge, we must use it well, so as to be a blessing to all hum- 
anity everywhere. 

We must not procure schools and faculties proving the right 
curricula, only, but we must enlist our Baptist homes. As the homes 
go so will our nation. We have far toe few students c:^.ming from our 
Baptist homes. We need to lay at the door of every Baptist the im- 
portance of his attending a Baptist College. 

North Carolina has Baptist schools of which she can be justly 
proud. We need to help make Wake Forest College larger and great- 
er, so every Baptist will have an opportunity in North Carolina to 
attend Wake Forest. Wake Forest needs our help, and we, our boys 
and girls need Wake Forest. W^e feel sure that the new location of 
the College will be a greater blessing to North Carolina Baptists. 
Respectfully submitted, 

BEN JAY McIVER 

The hospital report was given by J. H. Black. With interest the 
message of W. K. McGee was received. The hospital report is given 
below. 

HOSPITAL REPORT 
We will not take time or space to discuss at length or in detail 
the establishing of our own Baptist Hospital located in Winston- 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



7 



Salem, owned and operated by the Baptist people of North Carolina. 
Most of our Baptist people of North Carolina know something in 
general about the establishment, location and purpose of this Institu- 
tion through the work done over a period of twenty-five years for 
suffering and needy humanity. 

The thing that we would like to get across to the churches and 
to each individual Baptist of North Carolina is that God's Word 
teaches such a ministry as is practiced in and by the Hospital. Not 
only does it help the sick in body but it helps to heal the broken- 
hearted as well. 

Then, we would ask you to turn to God's Word. As far back as 
Genesis you will find that doctors were needed and used. Also, if you 
will turn to Proverbs, you will find that medicine is spoken of as 
compared to a merry heart. Hear Isaiah and Jeremiah as they cry 
out and tell the reason why the people are not healed. Mav we now 
go to Jesus, the one perfect Example in all things, and hear His an- 
swer to the rebtuk© and criticism of the religionist of His day. Hear 
Jesus again as He answers the sharp-pointed question on, Who is 
my neighbor? As He tells the story of how the man between Jeru- 
salem and Jericho was b«eaten and robbed and how the Good Samar- 
itan came along, poured oil and wine into the wounds, used his own 
property to get him to a place where human hands could administer 
to him and willingly paid all the expenses. 

This is exactly what the Baptist Hospital is doing for suffering 
humanity. It takes individuals sick and wounded, does what needs to 
be done and sends them back home to enjoy again all that life can 
give. The hospital is able to admit approximately 8500 in-patients 
or bed patients a year. The out-patient department is now able to 
accomodate around 26,000. These receive a complete diagnostic ex- 
amination and are advised as to their needs. The medical school op- 
erates a private clinic for those who are able to pay a physician. 
Approximately 40,000 patients are examined by this clinic each year. 
This means that in round numbers the Hospital helps 70,000 each 
year.. 

Many more than 70,000 would like to go, if the Hospital had 
room and equipment to accomodate them. I know this to be a fact 
by personal experience; some of these who would like to go live in 
Yancey County. Surely this is an indictment against the Baptists of 
North Carolina. 

More than 4000 out of the S500 who are admitted as b-ed pat- 
ients pay no doctor fees. Some pay reduced hospital expenses, some 
do not. The Mother's Day offering goes to take care of these who 
cannot pay but who need hospitalization. The cost of free service ren- 
dered during 1947 was $284,232.00. This huge amount of charity 
work was made by the Contribution of Baptist, the Duke Endowment 
welfare agencies, the earnings from the Hospital Soda Shop and 
ether avenues. The Baptist Hospital \7a.s the largest dispenser of 
Charity Medical care of any institution of its kind in the south. 

Since North Carolina Baptists have m.ade possible one of the 
top-ranking medical centers in our country, also one of the greatest 
influences for the cause of Christ, we should do what the Master 
would have us do in helping it to continue its ministry. Its oppor- 
tunities for service as an agency of mercy is a challenge to the com- 
passionate hearts of our great denomination. We should provide suf- 
ficient funds that its work might not be restricted. Then, we should 
back it with our prayers and full cooperation.

It is self-supporting except for its c^harity work, and it is for 
this side of its program that we again earnestly appeal to its own 
people for a worthy offering on Mother's Day. Last year our county 
gave in designated gifts to the Hospital ^565.71. Twenty-six churches 
contributed. ^

The morning session was closed with the singing of "Touch Me, 
Lord Jesus" by Miss Mary Evelyn Hensley, 

Friday Afternoon Session 

Follc^.ving lunch served by the Zion Church the messengers re- 
assembled. There were moments of meditation led by Jesse Hughes 
under this theme, *'Jesus Our Pattern in Worship." Miss Ada Lee 
Bailey blessed our hearts with the singing of "In Thy Holy Temple." 

W. M. Westa]l brought the Orphanage Report and E. S. Morgan 
spoke to this report. Report as adopted is as follows: 
REPORT ON ORFHANAGS 

Jesus is interested in all ages and in people of all conditions. 
He loves the children — those with parents and those without parents. 
One of the blessings that He gives to us is the privilege of caring 
for those who need our help. As Baptists we are able to do this 
through Our Home located at Thomasville and Kinston. 

We rejoice that you are interested in this phase of our work in 
a special way. We note from the record that we gave this year in 
gifts and merchandise the largest gift we gave to any one cause 
outside of our own county Perhaps, this gives us an unbalancsd bud- 
get but we know that they put it to a good use in our orphanage so 
we are glad that you gave it. Last year we gave $2731.00 and this 
year we gave $3117.55,' a gain of $383.00. 

W'e are counting on a good offering at Thanksgiving. If you 
need us, call on us.

S. F. Dowis lifted our hearts Godward and Southward as he 
spoke on this topic, "Looking Unto the Pattern As We Build for 
God in the South." 

J. G. Blackburn stirred our souls as he challenged us in speak- 
ing cn this subiect, "Looking Unto the Pattern As We Build For 
God in the World." 

Miss Mary Evelyn Hensley closed the meeting with the singing 
of "Touch Me, Lord Jesus." 

Friday Evening Sessictti 

E. J. Hall led the group in singing a number of hymns. Mrs. 
Brooks Wilson conducted bTief moments of worship with this theme, 
"Jesus Our Pattern in Service." She was assisted by Misses Evelyn 
Briggs, Doris Penland, Hope Bailey and Evelyn Hamrick. 

Mrs. Andrew Johnson gave the Training Union Report. It was 
adopted and is given below. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

One of the tragedies of the work of the Kingdom in this county 
is the few in number who are in training for more efficient service. 
We have thirty-three churches and only 8 churches with Training 
Unions: Bolens Creek, Browns Creek, Burnsvilie First, Cane River, 
Jacks Creek, Mount Pleasant, Pleasant Grove and Zion. These have 
enrolled in the various unions the following: 36 Story Hour Boys 
and Girls; 105 Juniors, 127 Intermediates, 73 Young People and 108 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



9 



Adults. This i^ives a total enrollment of 498 including all ages and 
we have 5,397 Church members. 

Truly, we in the Yancey Association need to hear Jesus speak- 
ing to our hearts saying, "Come after Me and I will make you to 
become fishers of men." Jesus wept over Jerusalem in His day and 
we feel that He must be weeping over Yancey and its failure to 
have His Children of this day enrolled in Training Union that they 
might learn to become approved workmen. The need is urgent, the 
harvest field is white unto harvest, the laborers are few and w^e are 
not doing much to train more workmen. 

We are grateful for that which is b'eing done. It is our convic- 
tion that the Training Unions now functioning are doing the most 
acceptable work that has been done for some time. Let us lift our 
hearts together to' God that He might touch us deeply that we might 
have a conviction that would compel us to be busy about "the Fath- 
er's Business" which would include the work of the Training Union. 
Let's pray and let's work under the guidance of God., that the 
Training Unions now in existence might do better work and that we 
might be able to' organize Training Unions in these churches which 
do not have one. God is interested in every person becoming that 
which he is capal'le of becoming and we believe that He wants every 
boy and every girl, every man and every woman to be in training. 
Paul said, "I can do all things through Him who strengtheneth me'*, 
and may that be our feeling as we go forth this year to do Train- 
ing Union work for Christ that honor and glory might come to Him. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. ANDREW JOHNSON, Director 

Miss Betty Jean Sparks of Pleasant Grove and Miss Ada Lee 
Bailey of Zion gave brief testimonies concerning the place of and 
the value of the Training Union in their lives, 

The Sunday School report was given by Dawson Briggs. It was 
adopted as read and is as follows: 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Jesus, in launching Hispro'gram for seeking and saving the lost, 
called to men on the sea and said, ''Conie after Me and I will make 
you to become fisherman of men." An invitation to enroll in His 
school. After His life here, just before His Ascension we hear Him 
say, "Go and TEACH them to observe all things whatsoever I have 
commanded you.*' This was a command and one that is all inclusive 
— v/e are all to go and be a part of the teaching agency of the 
church and our task is not complete until every one has been taught 
and has learned the whole truth. 

We are glad to reprot a slight increase in our enrollment of the 
Sunday Schools .^f the county. This \ ear's report shows an enroll- 
ment of 3505 with an average attendance of 2027. This is an in- 
crease in attendarice of 545 over last year. Yet, we have 5397 church 
members and this number, of course, would not include the children 
of the Cradle Roll Age, the Beginner Department and the Primary 
Department. You will note also that we have on an average 1478 
absent from our Sunday School each Sunday of these enrolled. 
Surely, we can hear Jesus saying, "If ye love Me, ye will keep My 
commandments — go-teach them . "

ionary Union It was aoproved and ioliov/s: 

REPORT ON W. M. U. J 

One day the Maker said: "Let there be light." | 

And He, once said, who hung on Calvary's tree — | 

"Ye are the light of the world" . . . 

Go! . . . Shine for Me. 

The Yancey Woman's Missionary Union has kept in a feeble way 
a light shining for Jesus during this Associational Year. We have 
had 8 Missionary Societies, 1 Young Woman's Auxiliary, 6 Girls* 
Auxiliaries, 3 Royal Ambassador Chapters, and 3 Sunbeam Bands. 

These organizations, the Mission Agency of the Church, have 
fundamentals which enrich lives and strengthen the Cause of Christ. 
These ideals are Study, Stewardship, Community Missions, Educa- 
tion of Young People and Prayer, This year we have enrolled 141 
and these have given $808,60. 

Christ is calling not only to these now enlisted in the Woman's 
Missionary Union who are shining lights for Him but He is calling 
to you who are here who are unenlisted and to all like you through- 
o ut the world. Christ loved all and gave His life that we might not 
only be saved but have an abundant life. The Woman's Missionary 
Union will help you to live this rich and full life that brings joy to 
you and is a benediction to the world.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 
We have three papers in our Denonnnation which are "Must 
Papers". These are "The Biblical Rrcorder", * The Comm.ission" and 
"Home Mission Fields". Some one has said, "To know is to care, to 
care is to pray and to pray is to give". It is cur conviction that this 
is the truth so we must not fail to take these papers that we might 
know and that our children mi.^ht know. To know that which the 
papers have to share with us would help make us happier and better 
Christians and this would mean *hat we would i:>e a greater blessing 
to this world. 

Respectfully submitted, - 
MRS. ANDREW JOHNSON, Christian Literature Chm. 
In the absence of Dr. L. L. Carpenter the message on Christian 
Literature was brought by Dr. W. K. McGee.-

After the singing- of "Give of Your Best to the Master", the sub- 
ject of "A More Excellent Way is the Way of Sharing Through Our 
i Hospital" was presented by Dr. McGee. Mrs. Lloyd Elliott gave the 
I report and it follows as adopted: 

REPORT ON THE HOSPITAL . 

Most of us are familiar with the great work done by our Baptist 
Hospital at Winston-Salem. The main objectives of the hospital are 
I "teaching and healing" and these are two of the principal precepts 
1 of Christ's ministry. Thousands of people ere given physical exami- 
nation and treatment throughout the year. The patients are cared 
for spiritually, also. To meet this need the hospital has established a 
full department of Religion with a Director, a Chaplain and a Stud- 
ent Secretary. The Chaplain is on call twenty-four hours a day. 

Young men are trained at the Bowman Cray School of Medicine 
; which is a part of the hospital. A total of 386 young wonien have 
I graduated from the School of Nursing since the opening of the 
1 hospital. 

1 Our Baptist Hospital has a personal sisnificance to me as my 
I Father has twice been a patient there. The last time that he was 
1 there about three years ago. He was taken there after spending sev- 
eral months in another hospital and his condition was very serious. 
God saw fit to spare his life and the hospital was used to accomplish 
this. 

A few weeks ago a man that had been blind, stood in our church 
and sang to express his gratitude to God for what the hospital had 
done for him in restoring his sight. It did my heart good b-ecause, I 
too loved the hospital and had had a small share in making tJiis 
experience possible for him because I had given to the Mother's Day 
Offering for the hospital. 

To those v.'ho gave to the hospital, we would like to say, "Thank 
you". Will you not continue to give and support it? To those who 
failed to give, will you not this year decide tc help in this great 
work of ministering to a sick and suffering world. 
J Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. LLOYD ELLIOTT. 

A More Excellent Way Is the Way of Sharing Tlirough State 
BXissions was next discussed by Earl Bradley, This was a period of 
isspiration and information and the cause of State Missions was 
strengthened in the thinking and feeling of those present. 

The morning session closed with prayer. 

Friday Afternocn Session 

The afternoon session opened with the singing, "Face to Face". 
M. H. Kendall led in the moments of meditation and E. J. Hall sang, 
"Speak to My Heart^'. 

During the business session the following committees were ap- 
iwinted: Resolution, Mrs. W. Z. Robertson, J. B. Briggs, Mrs. Dewey 
Jamerson; Place and Preacher, Jobe Thomas, Steve Clark, Everett 
Banks; Ordination, Charles Trammel, W. M. Westall, Floyd Huskins;

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

God is a good God and one of His expressions of love is the op- 
portunity which He gives us to share. It is a privilege to be able to 
join hands with other Baptist in North Carolina in providing an or- 
phanage for the boys and girls who need our help. We do this 
through our offerings for the orphanage and through providing pro- 
duce and canned food. 

Our churches cooperated in a fine way in our efforts to bfe true 
tc Christ's command to care for the children in our midst. We re- 
joice because we can report thirty churches reported having given to 
the orphanage. According to the report there are three churches 
that failed to remember this phase of our work. 

Let us commend you on this work that you have done. The 
total offering for the orphanage is $3.-^98.92, an increase of $781.37 
over last year. We would urge that each of us resolve today to do 
what we can for this worthy cause. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W M. WESTALL, Orphanage Chairman. 

The W. M. U. Report was given by Mrs. A. Z Jamerson assist- 
ed by the Associational Chairmen. The theme for this report was 
A More Excellent Way is the Way of Bearing Glad Tidings. 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

God through His hlcn has said, Ye are the Light of the World. 
In the work of the Woman's Missioiiary Union v/e have in our feeble 
way attempted to let our light shine here in this county and on out 
to the ends of the earth. 

Mrs. Lloyd Elliott, Community Missions Chairman, has proven 
to us that in each comniunity chere is work to be d:.ne. She has 
directed us through the local chaiimen to see the sick who needed 
us, the needy who could be provided for and the lost souls who need- 
ed a personal touch to lead them to the Lord. This year she has 
directed us in helping the prisoners in our midst. At one time 
arnund thirty men in the camp asked hy the lifted hand the prayers 
of the Christians. Then under the leadership of our local Chairmen 
we have done what we could for the Bible Schools. 

Our Mission Study Chairman, Mrs. B. R. Penland, has challeng- 
ed us to study. Our Societies and Junior Organizations will have 
tvvo classes this year. 

Mrs. W. B. Hensley, Stewar-lship Chairman, is leading us to see 
our responsibility as stev/ards. We had a splendid Stewardship Em- 
phasis Evening wnth all our Societies and Junior Oi-ganisations 
present. 

The Junior Organizations that we have aie doing a good work 
but we see the need for more organizations. Mrs. G. L. Hensley 
led this phase of our work in a marvelous way. The outstanding fea- 
ture, pel haps, was the camp in which we er.listed 40 boys and 49 
girls. There were a number who accepted Chnst as Saviour and 
some who declared God was calling them into lull-time Christian 
Service. 

; Mrs. Mcllie Silveu, our Literature Chairman, has kept before us 
the value of missionary infoi-mation. She is constantly urging us to 
subscrib'e for and read our magazines. 

For every person that has had a share in helping us promote

lOod's Kingdom we are grateful. Our prayer I." that He will lead us 
on and out to greater fields of service this year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS A. Z. JAMERSON, W. M. U. Supt. 
L. R. Brothers, Missionary to Africa, ably discussed the subject, 
A More Excellent Way is the Way of Shaiing Through Foreign 
Missions. 

Our attention was then called to the field at home as C. B. 
Trammel spoke on this topic, A More Excellent Way Is The Way 
of Sharing Through Home Missions. 

Claude Slagle pronounced the benedict^'cn. 

Friday Evening Session 

With the singing "Are Ye Able" the evening session began. 
Miss Louise Jamerson brought the devotional message. 

After this under the general topic, A More Excellent Way Is 
The Way of Learning. Various phases of Bibie School activities 
were presented by the Bible School pupils from the following chur- 
ches: Riverside, Byrd's Chapel, Burnsville First, Bumsville Colored 
Church, Browns Creek, Zion, Bolens Creek, Pleasant Grove and Jacks 
Creek. The group was impressed with the work which has been 
accomplished through Bible Schools. 

A More Excellent Way Is The Way of Training, was then con- 
sidered. Miss Wanda Robertson gave the following report which 
was adopted. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

A Church cannot be faithful '.o God and to His Son our Saviour 
and neglect the training of its meznbers. We recognize that our 
children need to be brought up m the nurture and admonition of the 
Lord but do we realize that aduhs need training, too? Unless our 
churches provide means of training for all many will miss the way. 

We rejoice that some of our churches have been faitliful in train- 
ing. We have ten churches with training unions with an enrollment 
of 420. 

We have the greatest reason for training — the Commission of 
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He commissioned us to "Go . . . 
and teach'^ How can one teach unless he is trained? 

Baptist of Yancey, this is our opportunity. We have some of the 
best people in all the world to work with and we have the best plans 
and programs for this training work. We have made a good begin- 
ning. How shall we finish the job? 

Pastors, deacons, church workers, God's challenge is to you — be 
faithful in training. May He say to each one on that rewarding 
day. Thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee rul- 
er over many things. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WANDA ROBERTSON, Training Union Director. 

A pageant. Victory Throi^gh Achievement, was then presented 
by members of the Training Unions; in the county. The closing pray- 
er was led by Miss Laura Mae Hilliard. 

Saturday [Morning Session

ing Session. C. B. Trammel led in moments of meditation and prayer

PROCEEDINGS ^ 
Friday Morning Session 

The meeting was called to order by the Moderator, E. J. Hall. 
In the absence of the clerk, Dawson Briggs, H. P. Hicks made the 
motion and it was seconded that Miss Laura Mae Hilliard act as 
clerk. The Hymn, "Revive Us Again" was sung, led by the Choris- 
ter, J. E. Hensley. Steve Clark led the opening prayer. In the 
absence of Rev. Claude Slagle and Rev. Ned Hughes, the Association 
asked Rev. Arthur Pate to bring the message. After the Scripture 
was read by Rev. Arthur Pate, Rev. Claude Slagle came in and 
was asked to bring the message as scheduled. The audience sang, 
"Amazing Grace." Romans 1:20-24 was the selected Scripture. 

E. L. Spivey, Field Secretary of the Baptist State Convention, 
was recognized at this time. He opened his heart and spoke to us 
concerning the work of Christ in North Carolina. 

The following committees were appointed: 

WATSON FUND: J. E. Hensley, R. A. Pate, R. L. Hinson. 

ORDINATION: Jesse Hughes, A. Z. Jamerson, C. B. Trammel. 

RECEPTION OF NEW CHURCHES: Edd Riddle, Steve Shu- 
ford, Audie Grinstaff. 

RESOLUTION: Nairm Phillips, Lowe Thomas, Ade Buchanan. 

PLACE AND PREACHER: Arthur Thomas, E. F. Hunter, Ar- 
thur Boone. 

Rev. J. E. Hensley rose to point of personal privilege and 
requested that this association go on record expressing its senti- 
ment about the appointment of a representative to the Vatican 
Rev. S. W. Shuford made this motion: "That the Yancey Baptist 
Association place on record with the State Convention and with 
the Southern Baptist Convention that we do not approve of the 
sending of a representative to the Vatican." It was seconded and 
passed. 

Friday Afternoon Session 

Mrs. A. Z. Jamerson brought the Woman's Missionary Union 
Report. The report was adopted as read and is found below: 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

In Isaiah 55:11 we read: "So shall my Word be that goeth 
forth out of my mouth. It shall not return unto Me void but it 
shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the 
thing whereunto I sent it." We see that long and faithful service 
in the work of the Woman's Missionary Union has and is bearing 
fruit in many instances in Yancey. Under handicaps we are la- 
boring together in the field of missions and we know that His 
Words and His Teachings will not return void. We can see it ex- 
panding and our work is slowly growing. 

This year we have organized two missionary societies, two 
Young Woman's Auxiliaries and one Royal Ambassador Chapter. 
We have a fine group of officers who are interested in the work. 
Our Mission Study Chairman, Mrs. B. R. Penland, is trying to lead 
us in Mission Study into a deeper field of knowledge. For a county 
wide community mission project we sent Coretha Flack to the Inter- 
racial Institute in Raleigh. You should have seen the expression 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 9 



of joy as she thanked the women for giving to her this opportunity. 
Mrs. Lloyd Elliot is our Community Mission Chairman. In stew- 
ardship, led by Mrs. W. B. Hensley, we are learning the value of 
giving as well as receiving. Our Young People's Leader, Mrs. G. L. 
Hensley, is leading in the work of the Young People. Perhaps the 
outstanding project among our young people was the Camp at 
Camp South Toe River. A large group of boys and girls enjoyed 
the teaching, fellowship and recreation during the week. Mrs. 
Monroe Mcintosh, Margaret Fund and Training School Chairman 
and Mrs. Mollie Silver, Literature Chairman, Mrs. Maude Robert- 
son, Associate Superintendent, Mrs. E. F. Hunter, Secretary, Mrs. 
J. B. Briggs, Pianist, Mrs. C. B. Trammel, Chorister and A. Z. Zim- 
erson, R. A. Counselor are all doing a splendid piece of work. 

Yancey County has a great task ahead. Now is the time for 
us to march forward with more courage than ever. We must hold 
the banner of Christ high because we remember that He said, 
"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." This is an 
important mission and we must work so that we may be able to 
pass on the lighted torch to waiting hands. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. A. Z. Jamerson 
W. M. U. Superintendent 
D. R. Fouts brought the Hospital report. The report was read 
and adopted by the Association and is given below. W. K. McGee 
spoke to this report. 

HOSPITAL REPORT 

Perhaps it would be better to term this an "Interrogatory" 
rather than "Report" as to our Hospital. Are the Baptists of Yancey 
County entire satisfied with the support which is being given to 
the Baptist Hospital at Winston-Salem? To answer in the affirma- 
tive would be an admission that we had reached a most serious 
stage in our religious life. Any Christian, or group of Christians, 
that has the feeling that work of the Kingdom has been completed 
and that nothing else remains to be done may be said to have 
reached a stage of hopelessness. Has it been sufficiently impressed 
upon Baptists of Yancey County that the program of Jesus was 
two-fold, that of teaching and healing? Do we believe that Jesus 
attached more importance to one than the other? To which do we 
attach more importance? 

Have Baptists in Yancey County come to fully realize the great 
institution which we have at Winston-Salem and the work which 
it is doing? The answer to these questions can best be found by 
examining the work which Yancey County Baptists did in the last 
Associational year. More than half of the Churches in the County 
failed to contribute according to the information furnished. The 
total amount of offering on Mother's Day was less than $600.00 and 
yet the amount of charity services, without any charge, rendered 
by the Hospital to people of Yancey County exceeded the amount 
of contributions made by the Yancey Associaion. The proper in- 
terest and spirit would dictate that we give far in excess of the 
amount which we receive and unless we do so we are not really 
helping others who are unable to help themselves. The missionary 
spirit directs that our liberality far exceed that which we receive. 



10 MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Those of us who have been blessed with good health and sub- 
stantial income should evidence our thankfulness by seeing to it 
that a much larger sum is contributed to the Baptist Hospital by 
the Churches in Yancey County during the next Associational year. 

The offering mentioned above does not include the special 
offering for the erection of an additional wing of 150 beds to the 
Baptist Hospital. Such a small percentage of the Churches, either 
m the County or in North Carolina, are responding to this request. 
Can we, as Baptists, expect continued blessings in large measure 
when we dem^onstrate an attitude of neglect for those institutions 
which are endeavoring to carry out the great two-fold program 
which Jesus followed v/hen upon earth? 

Earnestly submitted, 
Dover R. Fouts 

In the absence of the Orphanage Chairman, W. M. Westall, 
A. Z. Jamerson read the Orphanage Report. The report was adopted 
as read. E. C. Wilkie spoke to the report. 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Jesus was conscious of children — their needs and their abilities 
were recognized by Him and these incidents recorded for us. The 
Guide Book records, also, these words, "Inasmuch as ye have done 
it unto one of the least of these, ye have done it unto Me." During 
this Associational year our churches have responded cheerfully and 
liberally that we might share in providing a home and Christian 
training for the boys and girls in our State who need a home. 

In the financial tables which will be given in the Minutes you 
will find the churches which gave and the amount given by each 
church. Every church during the year has the opportunity of 
giving either produce or money, or both. 

We would commend each church that "Launched Out With 
Christ Through a Gift to the Orphanage." Yet, we would urge all 
of us to make our gift larger this coming year that we might have 
a greater part in this phase of Kingdom Work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. M. Westall 
Orphanage Chairman 

J. C. Canipe, Secretary of Evangelism, brought the closing 
message. 

Saturday Morning Session 

The session opened v/ith the singing of "Amazing Grace" and 
prayer. 

Steve Clark gave the Sunday School report under this sub- 
ject, "Launching our with Christ Through our Sunday Schools." 
The report was adopted as read. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

In Hosea 4:6 it is recorded, "My people are destroyed for lack 
of knowledge, because thou hast rejected knowledge I will also 
reject thee." We crave knowledge. Why? One man, woman, 
layman, pastor or teacher cannot absorb or hold all the good and 
great things taught by God's word. It is a process of fellowship 
and study together of God's Word so that we can teach the Word 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 



of God not according to one man's opinion but with the under- 
standing which come with prayer and study together. 

People crave the knowledge of God's Word because there is no 
man, lost or saved, but who needs the comfort of God's Word. The 
saved need it to help live and teach others. The lost need it to 
know how to be saved. 

When Jesus gave the Great Commission, "Go ye into all the 
world," He included here where we live, Yancey County. Our 
country has many lost souls to win and many church members 
who need to be in the Sunday Schools. With the industrial growth 
of Yancey County, many new people will come in, and there is a 
need for growth in the churches. Here is a great challenge to us. 
What are we going to do about it? 

The harvest is ripe today. Let us not wait until tomorrow to 
reap. 

Through the help of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, let us 
bear fruit in our Baptist Sunday Schools of Yancey County in the 
year 1951 as never before. Let us give our best to the local Sunday 
School and be cooperative with every church in our association in 
this great work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Steve Clark 

Sunday School Superintendent 
The Training Union report, "Launching Out With Christ 
Through a Training Program" was adopted as read. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Through another year God has been good to us, yet as we 
think of all the possibilities for Training Union work in our county, 
we feel that in many respects we have failed Him. However, we 
are thankful for the work that has been done during the past year. 

We have five churches with Training Unions. We had two 
boys, David Hadley, First Church, Burnsville and Gerald Murdock, 
Bolen's Creek Church, who were declared state winners in the 
Junior memory work tournament at Fruitland. 

It was gratifying to have the following churches observe Youth 
Week this year: Burnsville First, West Burnsville, Jacks Creek, 
Browns Creek, Zion, Laurel Branch, Bolen's Creek, and Pleasant 
Grove. 

Let us ask ourselves the question: Did we do enough? No, as 
long as there are churches in Yancey County without Training 
Unions our task is unfinished. This year is gone, but as a new 
one begins may we not be satisfied until every church has a Train- 
ing Union. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wanda Robertson 
Miss Louise Jamerson read the Bible School report. It was 
adopted as read and is as follows. 



12 MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT 

Jesus in His last command to the disciples sent them — and 
us — into all the world to teach whatsoever He had commanded. He 
did not limit this teaching to adults. Rather, He sent us to teach 
ALL people. 

In order that our children might be better taught the way to 
the more abundant life which Jesus came to bring, our churches 
have launched a vast program of teaching through the Vacation 
Bible Schools. Fifteen of our churches in the Yancey Association 
enrolled 630 boys and girls with an average attendance of 550 in 
Bible Schools. There they were led to worship through Scripture, 
prayer, and song. They were taught through Scripture and story 
more about the Christ way for man's life. Through handwork 
and play, they were taught to do with patience work with their 
hands and to love and respect the rights of others. Some were led 
to accept Christ as Saviour and others to dedicate their lives to 
definite Christian work. 

Climaxing the weeks of work, study and play together was the 
Bible School rally held in Burnsville, August 29, with approxi- 
mately 200 people attending. Glim.pses of Bible School work were 
presented by boys and girls representing the following churches: 
Burnsville Colored, Burnsville First, Brown's Creek, Bolen's Creek, 
and V/est Burnsville. 

In observance of the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of 
the Co-operative Program the Intermediates in some of our 
churches prepared speeches on the Co-operative Program in the 
Bible Schools. The winner in each church entered a Better Speak- 
ers Tournament at the rally. Four churches — Burnsville First, 
Bolen"s Creek, Laurel Branch, and West Burnsville — ^participated. 
The winner, Athelene Jamerson from Bolen's Creek, will be given 
a week at Ridgecrest next summer. 

Excllent work was done in Junior and Intermediate notebooks. 
Those selected as best were: 

Junior: 1st place — Gail Hall, Burnsville First; 2nd place, Lorret- 
ta Robinson, Brown's Creek; honorable mention — Cinda Roland, 
Burnsville Colored. 

Intermediate: 1st place — Geraldine Roy, Bolen's Creek and 
Mary Lou Fox, Bolen's Creek; 2nd place, Shirley Styles, Burnsville 
First and Erma Styles, Burnsville First. 

Winners in handwork were: 

Junior — Girl: 1st place — Elaine Penland, Laurel Branch; 2nd 
place — Loretta Robinson, Brown's Creek. Boy:lst place — Paisie 
Hensley, Bolen's Creek; 2nd place — Gail Hall, Burnsville First. 

Intermediate — Girl: 1st place — Mary Emily Anglin, Bank's 
Creek, and Virginia Robinson, West Burnsville; 2nd place — Polly 
Ann Peterson, Burnsville First. Boy: 1st place — ^Lee Roy Cooper, 
West Burnsville; 2nd place — Jerald Honeycutt, Jack's Creek 

The challenge is ours. If you have a Bible School in your 
church, the challenge to you is to launch out into the deep through 
Christ for a better, more consecrated, more dedicated program of 
teaching. If you do not have a Bible School in your church, the 
challenge to you is to launch out through Christ into this great 



MINUTES YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13 



program of teaching boys and girls. Will we not accept this chal- 
lenge that our boys and girls may know the more abundant life? 

Respectfully submitted, 

Louise Jamerson, 

Bible School Director 
R. A. Pate was asked to present the work of the American 
Bible Society. J. E, Hensley made a motion "that the delegates 
go back and recommend that the church consider the sending of 
an offering from that church to the American Bible Society." It 
was seconded and passed. 

Miss Madge Carter read a report on Christian Literature. It 
was adopted as read. M. H. Kendall spoke to the report. The re- 
port is included below. 

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

Ever since I can remember I have liked to read. I would not 
embarrass an adult by asking if he can read; but I would ask that 
person — what do you read. 

We live in an age where literature is available at every turn. 
It is up to teachers and parents to help select reading materials 
for the youth of our land. It is left to us as Christian citizens to 
influence the reading choice of those about us. We know that 
good literature is expensive. But what is good without a price? 
We have an excellent way of keeping interested Baptists informed 
of what they and other Baptists are doing. By that I mean the 
publications made possible by our State and Southern Conventions. 
I challenge you to read more and let it be the literature that is 
authentic, uplifting and pleasing to God. Man's printed thoughts 
that make us look up is worth reading. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Madge Carter. 

M. H. Kendall, Professor of Bible, Mars Hill College, spoke on, 
"Launching Out With Christ Through Our Christian Schools." 

D. R. Fouts was asked to preside during the election of a 
Moderator. On motion of J. E. Hensley the association elected 
E. J. Hall, Moderator. E. J. Hall took the chair and raised the ques- 
tion concerning an Associational Missionary. A discussion fol- 
lowed. It was agreed that it was a voluntary movement and that 
churches could contribute and could request the services of the 
Worker. R. A, Pate was elected Vice-Moderator. J. B. Bridges 
was elected clerk.
